The Bloomington Scottish Country Dance Group will be performing in the Highland Dance Pavilion at 1:30 pm on Sunday.
Scottish Country Dancing began in Scotland in the 18th century. It is a social dance where a group of couples are positioned adjacent to each other in two parallel lines. A Scottish Country Dance is composed of a series of formations which are performed in a different sequence for each dance, of which there are hundreds. American Square Dancing evolved from Scottish Country Dancing, a major difference being that in square dancing, the formations are announced by a caller as the dance progresses. In Scottish Country Dancing, the formations of the dance are briefed before the dance begins. Dancers then rely on their memory to perform the dance.
