Reconnect with First Footing in 2019

As we approach December 31, let’s first foot into the New Year with a flowing store of dance, music and stories.

The Traditional Dance Forum of Scotland and artist in residence Nic Gareiss invite you to share your 2019 First Footings through videos, photos and reminiscences. Be sure the use the tag #FirstFootingDance on all your socials!



First Footing is the custom of the first person of the year to cross a home’s threshold, bringing a gift and good fortune for the year to come. It is the ethos of this tradition that inspired the First Footing Dance Residency with Nic Gareiss. It’s about building connections between neighbours across dance and music communities, traditional and contemporary practices.
