A brand new committee takes the festival forward into it's second decade......watch this space!
Dannsa are stepping into our second decade with as much passion for Scottish traditional dance as ever. The core dancers, Caroline Reagh and Sandra Robertson, and piper and stepdancer Fin Moore always dance to live music - fiddle, pipes and Gaelic song.
The relationship between the music and dance is fundamental to our spirit and style and Dannsa take great pleasure in sharing this with communities throughout Scotland.
Dannsa have had first-foot involvement in shaping many traditional dance events in Scotland ; performances throughout the country and indeed elsewhere, Community and schools workshops and ceilidhs and our annual dance festival Srathspè Away.
We have had a busy year working with one of Cape Breton’s finest step-dancers and musicians, Mac Morin and taking the show out on tour in the Highlands and Islands and in the central belt. Thanks to all who came and supported us. It was billed as a "evening of wonderful rhythms and finely crafted traditional dance" (Stornoway Gazette, April 2012). We are now planning for the next few years, so keep watching this space.
For those of you who love our music, click on the musician's name to be sent to where you can buy their cds - Mac, Matheu, Fin, Catriona, or try i-tunes and if you fancy learining to step - try our tutorial dvd.
Whether or not you know the difference between a reel-step and a two-step, Dannsa will have you up on the floor agus a' Dannsa.
