Scottish Winter Dancing in Moscow

Selection_548In December 2014 Moscow expats joined Russians interested in traditional music and dances of Scotland at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church for a wee turn of Pre-Christmas dancing.

Mixing simple Scottish Ceilidh dances (for beginners) and some more complicated Scottish Country dances (for experienced dancers) resulted in a fun and energetic evening enjoyable for everyone, with lots of smiles, cheer and laughter. Live music from Anatoly Isaev (bagpipe, Scottish button accordion) and Vladimir Volkov (fiddle) supported the emotional uplift.

The event was organised by Sergey Alferov and Anna Kochetkova (The Shady Glen School of Scottish Dancing), with the help of the Moscow Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society and the International Women’s Club of Moscow Ceilidh Dance Group.

The next opportunity to participate in lively Scottish social dancing at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church is on St. Valentine’s Day, 14th February 2015.
