This dance was devised in 2000 for the Argyll Scottish Dancing Group. The Argyll Scottish Dancing Group has its origins at Argyle Street School in the Kings Cross area of London in the early 1950s. For many years it has concentrated its activities on weekend schools, with some social dancing in the evening. To help the dancers tackle the evening programme tuition was arranged during the day and by the 1970s the weekend schools were providing 2 classes for beginners and experienced dancers as well as the evening dances. In 1990 it was decided to introduce a Day School to replace the May weekend where 3 teachers and musicians provide for all levels of dancer. Over the years the Argylls have provided an opportunity for new and lesser known teachers and musicians to teach and play and there are many who are now well known whose first public appearance was at an Argyll event. A residential Weekend School in the autumn, with 2 teachers and 3 musicians, suitable for those who already have a good working knowledge of common steps and formations, has also been added to their repertoire.
