Step Dancing

Jayne MacLeod from Ness on the Isle of Lewis has been dancing from a young age, starting out as a Highland Dancer. She was introduced to step dance by Mats Melin and the group Dannsa when they visited Lewis, touring rural communities performing and promoting traditional dance. Since then, she was inspired to attend Ceòlas, learning from the best of traditional dancers, both Scottish and Canadian, such as Frank McConnell, Sandra Robertson, Mary Janet MacDonald and Harvey Beaton. She has taught and performed over the years across Scotland, Ireland, Canada and France. She also dances with friends as part of the dance group Ceum air Cheum.
