Road Scholar
Program #16131RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Experience all things Scottish in this interactive exploration of historical and cultural highlights through the universal languages of dance, music, and storytelling. Enjoy expert presentations enhanced by each of these arts as we learn about the people, Scotland’s influence on America, and what’s happening there today. From Brave Hearts to Bonnie Princes, Country Dances to Scottish ballads, take a delightful journey through one of the most vibrant cultures in the British Isles.



Highlights

• Listen to recordings, watch live performances and singing.
• Focus on collected European ballads, and learn form and poetic devices specific to ballads and write ballads of your own.
• It’s up on your toes for the jigs, reels and strathspeys of Scotland’s traditional social dancing! Learn the steps and rhythms and put it all together.
