Learn to Scottish Step-Dance (DVD): For more than a decade, Dannsa have been blazing a trail throughout Scotland and elsewhere performing their unique blend of traditional dances and percussive Scottish step dance.

This DVD the first of its kind, includes easy-to-follow lessons in Strathspeys, Reels and Jigs, with plenty of opportunity to practice as you watch. Additional material on the DVD includes short videos of step-dancers and information about the history and social context of this dance style. The Dannsa Step-dance Tutorial DVD is aimed at the beginner and the intermediate step-dancer. Dannsa's core step-dancers Caroline Reagh and Sandra Robertson lead you through each step, accompanied by Fin Moore on the pipes, at a variety of different speeds to support the learner. 65 minutes.
"Dannsa impress me with their meticulous footwork, and their performances here on Cape Breton Island were a huge hit with all audiences. Their steps are executed with precision and ease, and I love their neat feet and their 'close to the floor' style, while dancing to the richness of traditional Strathspeys and Reels. They love to dance, they love to perform, they love to teach, and their enthusiasm is contagious. It doesn't get any better than that!" (Mary Janet MacDonald, Cape Breton)
