The main theme this evening is to enjoy Scottish music and dancing, to learn to dance right on the dance floor, experience a joy of communication and, if possible, help children and adults, suffering from autistic disorders.

Here are excerpts from the article "How Austria can restore it's status as a centre of Autism research" by prof. Gaia Novarino:
"Each year, more than 1,000 children in Austria start to show autism traits, making it crucial to diagnose and treat the condition and yet there are few enters specialised on diagnostics and treatment, families wait many months for getting tested and diagnosed, missing precious time for reabilitation, this delay is crucial.

The lack of autism specialists and treatment centers leads to a situation where many people wait for a year to get a place in a program at the Autism Centre of the MedUni Vienna. And places, covered with the state insurance plan are very limited".

Our goal, with the help of experts, doctors and specially trained teachers is to collect resources for the development of the above mentioned centers

There are lots of forms of Autism.
Thus, we support the idea by the group of experts, that there must be a variety of offers and possibilities in order to give an autistic person a choice and create the possible conditions for individualisation, which is impossible without international networking, creating groups where not only people with autism represented, but help create public awareness for autism.

Novarino Group
Genetic and molecular basis of neurological developmental disorders Gaia Novarino's research examines the genes underlying hereditary forms of neu-
rodevelopmental disorders such as epilepsy, intellectual disability and autism. Neu-
rodevelopmental disorders affect millions of people and are often unresponsive to
therapy. The Novarino Group uses methods from different disciplines, from molecu-
lar biology to behavioral observation, to find common pathophysiological mecha-
nisms that underlie this group of developmental disorders.

The essence of Scottish culture through dance
"The job of feet is walking, but their hobby is dancing"
(Amit Kalantri).
Time to try the essence of Scottish culture through dance.
It is not easy to dance classical ballroom dancing but even to find a ballroom partner to attend the ball. BUT the Scottish one is a very nature of a movement. You just need to go to the centre of the hall, and you can change partners every dance! And
you can also spin and laugh as much as you like!
We will have several interruption of ceilidh, for ruffle and auction. You can get aquainted with the Auction lots on our website, or order a special catalog with description.
How does this Ceilidh work?
A group of professional dancers show the dance. Further, the member of the group leads those who wish through the movements of the dance. A facilitator explains every part of it until it seem to understand. We try once without music before doing it completely. then the music starts and the host give us a signal to all start at the same time, and you just hope to remember the moves! Each dance lasts from 5 to 10 minutes. The dance moves are not that difficult, they just need to be repeatedly practised!
We recommend to follow Robbie Shepherd to step-by-step guide.
Dress code
The ideal option for ball is a national Scottish kilt suit, full set.
If you do not have kilt, in this case, there is nothing better that a regular suit: trousers (checkered trousers are possible), ball shirt, formal jacket. If there is entourage costume - why not? The main thing is that it is convenient for you.
Ladies: any dress or skirt bellow knee (or mid-knee) will do. The main condition of the dress is ease of movement. You should not wear too long dress, someone can step on edge and tear, very tight will not allow you to show all the grace of movement.
