dc.description.abstract Abstract: This article briefly outlines the migration of percussive step dancing to Cape Breton Island from the Scottish Highlands in the 19th century and the introduction of this dance genre to Scotland from Cape Breton in the 1990s. I reflect on the changes to the dance genre in Cape Breton and to the understanding of step dancing in Scotland, particularly on a visual and kinaesthetic level, as the reference points and the guiding support of a step dance community do not exist in Scotland as they do in Cape Breton. Résumé : Cet article décrit brièvement la migration de la danse à claquettes faisant percussion depuis les Highlands d’Écosse à l’Île du Cap-Breton au 19e siècle, puis le retour de ce genre de danse en Écosse depuis le Cap-Breton dans les années 1990. Je réfléchis aux changements qu’a connus cette danse au Cap-Breton et à la manière dont on conçoit la danse à claquettes en Écosse, plus particulièrement aux niveaux visuel et kinesthésique, car il n’existe pas en Écosse, contrairement à l’Île du Cap-Breton, de points de référence et de lignes directrices pouvant soutenir une communauté de danse à claquettes. en_US
