Core Repertoire

The Core Repertoire (April 2008) is not intended as a definitive list of the best or most popular dances, but is simply a selection compiled by experienced dancers and teachers to meet the criteria noted below. The selection of dances has been made with a number of objectives in mind. Among them are:

  • To provide inexperienced dancers with a manageable repertoire of dances that appear on dance programmes;
  • To provide teachers and dancers with a structured list of dances containing the principal formations of Scottish Country Dancing;
  • To provide programme devisors with a common base from which a part of any dance or ball programme can be developed in order to encourage inexperienced dancers.
