Workshop Turning variations for scottish by Koen Dhondt



We are going to learn how to change the direction of rotation while dancing scottish. The couples will turn right and left alternately at different moments in the dance. We will learn the so-called 'salsa' variations and other ways to play with the direction of rotation.

The emphasis is on communication in the dance and on leading and following, with specific exercises. You will also receive some general dance tips and personal corrections.

Do you want to start practising straight away?

In the evening, there will be a folk ball at La Cellule133a with Trio14. Don't forget to book your ticket on this website. Our folk balls are often sold out well in advance.

You can refer to the menu to find all information on general organisation of our workshops, prices and discounts etc.

Practical Info


We suggest all participants bring something for tea. Potluck!

The bar will be open throughout the day. Frisse Folk offers water for free 


Our workshops in Brussels are usually given in French, with translations into Dutch or English if necessary. Koen is fluent in 5 languages, so you will get individual feedback in the language of your choice.


Please arrive 15 minutes before the advertised starting time of the workshop, so we can start on time.


Workshop for advanced dancers, and for talented semi-advanced dancers who learn quickly.

You should master the basic steps of the scottish fluently, have a stable dance posture, be familiar with leading and/or following, and preferably also be open to changing roles. 

We assume that you need at least one and a half year of intensive dance practice. (Some of) this experience may have been acquired in other couples dances (tango, salsa, forro, …). 

Dance Partner

It is never necessary to register as a couple for our dance workshops. 
Therefore, you can register alone, as a couple, with friends …
