Scottish Reels and Jigs

The Scottish reel is a lively Celtic folk dance with quick 2/4 or 4/4 time. Dancers perform traveling figures and “setting” steps. Reels emerged in the 16th century but vanished under the Presbyterian church’s influence, reappearing in the Scottish Lowlands after 1700. They are danced in sets of two or more couples, with popular examples like Mairi’s Wedding and the Duke of Perth. The Irish reel, known as cor, is more intricate and can be danced solo or as a set dance.

Jigs, energetic solo dances, gained popularity in 16th and 17th-century Scotland, northern England, and Ireland since the 18th century. They feature rapid footwork and a rigid torso. At Elizabeth I’s court, northern jigs became fashionable in the 16th century. Performers sometimes danced them wearing clogs, similar to modern clog dances of northern England. During the 16th and 17th centuries, jigs were stage dances and stylized keyboard compositions by famous composers like William Byrd, John Bull, and Giles Farnaby. Jigs also spread to France, becoming fashionable at the court of Louis XIV, known as the “gigue.”
