Samuele Graziani & Faye Mather

SCD Teachers

Samuele Graziani, from Bologna, Italy.

Is an engineer and works in the railway sector. He loves to run, skiing and cycling. But Dance is his true passion: he has been teaching Scottish dances and historical dances for more than twenty years, specializing in the 19th century. He took his RSCDS teacher certificate in 2012 and in 2018 had the pleasure of teaching at the St. Andrews summer school. He lives in Bologna, with his wife, his son, his daughter… all dancers.


Faye Mather, from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Faye started dancing when she was 6 and has never looked back! She moved to Edinburgh for her studies (and of course the dancing!) where she then gained her teaching certificate and started sharing her love and enthusiasm for SCD. She is excited to be teaching for the Youth Branch and can’t wait to see everyone on on dancefloor soon.
