My project is about the story of how the culture of step dancing has been brought to Nova Scotia as well as other parts of Canada. I will be focusing on when the Scots came, why, and more about the history and story of how step dancing came to be in Canada. I will also share my connections to this rich type of dance, why I chose this subject for my heritage fair and eventually this video, as well as telling about step dance today, going into the music it is danced to, the difference between tap and step, traditional and modern, and more. For learning purposes, I will demonstrate a dance using several steps, explaining whether they are traditional or modern.
