Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wilt thou go to the barracks, Johnny? is a national dance in Highland dancing, and was originally a recruitment dance for the Royal Scottish Army. It is usually performed wearing the highland dance costume (kilt and vest), though rarely in competitions (instead it is danced for medal testing). This dance is supposed to represent the strength, agility, and determination the soldier received while going through training. It is commonly danced to the pipe march The Barren rocks of Aden, Unlike most national dances, which are usually danced in an Aboyne dress (if the dancer is female), "Barracks Johnny" is danced in the standard kilt-based outfit. It is the second dance of the "national dance" subtype to be danced in this particular outfit, the other being Highland Laddie.show more
