We will once again be joining the New York Scottish Country Dancing meetup to celebrate Burns Night in New York. Though Burns Night is officially Jan. 25, we'll get an early start on the haggis toasting on this night.

Burns Night commemorates the life and times of 18th century poet Robert Burns, the national poet of Scotland. Burns, pictured to the left, was also a Scottish folk music collector. He gave the world Auld Lang Syne among other tunes.

On this night, there will be dancing, there will be entertainment, there will be bagpipes and a Scottish singer. There will be haggis, along with neeps and tatties, and other goodies, and there will be whiskey, or as they say in Scotland, whisky.

The party and the dancing starts about 7:15  $10 cover at the door of the school which will get you a coupon for a free dancing lesson at a future New York Scottish Country Dancing meetup. There will be no pre-meetup, please go straight to the school for the dance and ask for Vivian when you get there. You may need to ring the doorbell or knock loudly at the door to be let in. You will find the Scottish dancers to be very friendly, welcoming and happy to teach you the basic steps.

So come check it out, learn some Scottish dance steps, toast the haggis and celebrate the life of a great poet and Celtic music pioneer.

    You don't need any dance experience to dance at this party night. Everything we're doing is easy and quickly taught. We're dancing to a band. You'll meet your partners on the dance floor. So come and have fun!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
