Shady Glen School and RSCDS Moscow Branch are glad to welcome you again to the Moscow St. Andrew's Anglican Church - the place with unique atmosphere, the place where Scottish music sounds especially festive.
The ball programme includes the dances for the people who are in love with each other, who are in love not only with Scottish music, but also with Scottish Country Dances! Reels, jigs and strathspeys will be combined with Scottish Waltzes - we decided not to refuse ourselves anything and include the most romantic dance in the program.
