The most fun Judy has had on a dancefloor in quite a while took place during the ITI Scottish Network's wonderful three-day summer meeting in Stirling, Scotland, where she was lucky enough to be the guest speaker. The program included a Scottish ceilidh, which is much more than a dance. Judy had been a tiny bit afraid of the ceilidh -- yes, there's some anxiety when one must perform unknown dances -- that turned out to be completely unfounded. The very fun and talented live band gave easy instructions, and one needs no experience to do this. Who knew it would end up on YouTube, though? Watch us dance! This specific dance is called the Shetland Wedding Reel, and Judy is wearing a black and orange kimono-style dress (and high heels, for some reason). Keep an eye out for the tall male dancer -- he's fantastic, and he's wearing a traditional Scottish kilt. Enjoy!
