STORIES ABOUT DANCING AND DANCERS
The television series Strictly Come Dancing has introduced
millions of enthralled viewers to the
delights of dancing, an activity for all celebrated by Lorn Macintyre in his new short story collection Miss Esther Scott’s Fancy.
A young woman from the Highlands
finds herself performing the Highland Fling for a mystic on the continent;
ghillies dance with royals at Balmoral Castle; romance is found in the reels at the
Royal Scottish Country Dance’s annual Summer School at St Andrews, where the legendary Miss Jean Milligan presides; a girl
inherits the hard shoes of a
mysterious Irish dancing champion; white gloves, tails, dazzling gowns and
tangos in the sumptuous ballrooms of
Edinburgh and Glasgow; a young woman falls heads over heels in swing dancing; a
ceilidh dancer finds a sinister partner. Though some of these
stories are about betrayal, tragedy and loss, the
joy of dance is always present.
