Winter School 2017: the final dance

Ceilidh dancing

Dancing into the wee hours…

One of the highlights was definitely the ceilidh on the final night. With the presentations completed, everyone’s minds turned to the meal and dancing.

With the marquee transformed into a dancefloor, things were a little slow to kick off. But soon students from all institutions were throwing themselves into the complex moves of Strip the Willow, the Gay Gordons and the Dashing White Sergeant – led by the Scottish contingent. And we enjoyed some traditional singing.

The whole of InDI was very impressed with everyone’s efforts. Learning Scottish dancing on the hoof is no mean feat.

And it is no exaggeration to say that the marquee was jumping and for many the night continued into the small hours. We hope there were not too many sore heads for the journey home.

Here’s some of the best pictures from the night and catch up with all the goings-on from the event on our blog!
