According to The Dance in Scotland Report 2011, more people in Scotland take part in dance activities than football! Ceilidh is the Gaelic word for party or gathering. Where there is a ceilidh, there will be music, singing, conviviality, and a great deal of dancing. Traditional Scottish dancing comes in many forms — the magnificent athleticism of highland dancing, the fun of social Scottish country dancing, and the unbridled and truly liberating form of free-form ceilidh dancing.
