Fadac Hornpipe-the dance (6) RE: Hornpipe-the dance 28 Jun 99

If you go to a Scottish games, you will find kids performing the Sailors Hornpipe. Every movment in the dance was a copy of a real movment as used on working sail.

Suggestion; Find your local Scottish Scocity. and ask them. I'm sure there are books on how to perform the dance.

It's fun to see these young (8-14) boys and girls dressed as 18century British sailors dancing away. This is one of my favorate things to watch at the Scottish games.
