Come and enjoy the BC Highland Games and watch Vancouver massed dancers entertain in front of the grandstand. Then the audience is invited to join in the dance as the action moves to the South End of the track.

Worldwide “Commonwealth Ceilidh” and the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society Vancouver’s 50th Anniversary

This coming summer the city of Glasgow, Scotland will be the host city for this year’s “2014 Commonwealth Games”.

Part of Scotland’s promotions is a program called “Get Scotland Dancing”. As part of this program the Royal Scottish Dance Society is organizing a Commonwealth Ceilidh to take place all around the world on the same day. That day is 21 June when Branches and Clubs of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) in many commonwealth countries worldwide will participate in this dance extravaganza.

This world wide dance event will take place on the same day as the BC Highland Games. The Vancouver Branch of the RSCDS will hold its Commonwealth Ceilidh as part of the Highland Games entertainment.

Vancouver is a significant Branch of the world wide RSCDS, and, this year is the Vancouver Branch 50th Anniversary. So the Commonwealth Ceilidh at the BC Highland Games will also be part of the year long celebration for RSCDS Vancouver.
