Scottish steps on Sundays

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- If you or your kids grew up dancing, it's likely your classes were in tap, ballet and jazz -- not Scottish Country Dancing. But it's not too late to start learning.

On Sunday evenings, you can hear the sounds of music and feet tapping the floor as you enter the Wil-Mar Center. Inside, the John Muir (Wisconsin) chapter of the Royal Scottish Dance Society are learning and laughing together.

We're really interested in who we're dancing with, and making social contact with who we're dancing with," says instructor Charles Snowdon, who's been dancing for more than 40 years. "That's the most important thing."

The group's website says that the lively, group-oriented dance style is geared towards everyone, and their members range in age from 8 to 80. Attendance at practices is free, although a one to two dollar donation is requested to help cover room rental.

You can learn more about how to take your first Scottish country steps on the group's website.
