Some Scottish Ceilidh Dances in a long line down the room such as the Riverside Jig - where the top four dancers run down to the end of the lines are Contra Dances. Contra dance refers to several partnered folk dance styles in which couples dance in two facing lines or in a group of four. It has mixed origins from English country dance and French dance styles in the 17th century. Colin's research suggests many traditional Scottish dances were originally done like this in a long line down the room and dances were split into sets of 4 when music was put onto 78 records as that was the length of the recording.

Philipe Plard is a French melodeon player that a lot of us at EdinBal absolutely love: his music is simply great, full of energy and sensibility, and make you want to dance straight away. He also plays for a wide range of dances and is a great guy, with a distinctive feeling during his bal: you simply have to come to understand what I'm talking about! He is the founder member of legendary band VAG, and the composer of many of nowadays "standard" French folk tunes. We are incredibly happy to have him to come to Edinburgh and we look forward for you to discovering him! He will play from about 9.15pm until the end of the night. We are also very excited to start the night by Scottish ceilidh, from 7.30 to 9pm with the local ceilidh band Saxofolk. They add a jazzy twist to the regular Scottish ceilidh bands and will start the evning in great style: https://saxofolk.wordpress.com/ Bal folk is like a French/Western European version of a ceilidh, and is open to everybody. Informal and fun atmosphere guaranteed! You can simply come to listen to the great music, or move your body on the dance floor – there are basic steps for each of the dances, but these can be learnt very quickly during the bal, so a will to have some fun dancing on French folk music is everything which is required!
