George Whitehorne is the father of Mary Helen Polensky, one of the founding members of the Silk and Thistle class. He has written a number of Scottish Country Dances and has graciously allowed us to post them here. Every year he attends the Chicago Branch Weekend Workshop and frequently brings dances for the Silk and Thistle class to try. Each of the dances listed here has been danced at the Silk and Thistle class and most have been included on one of the Frolic on the Fox dance programs.
There are two versions of each dance available on this page. Clicking the dance name brings up an HTML version; clicking on the "doc" link next to the name brings up a Word version (does not work in all browsers).
