WHAT IS HIGHLAND DANCING?

Highland Dancing is a form of dance dating back to the 11th century in the Highlands of Scotland.  It can begin at an early age and is a superior form of physical exercise which promotes personal grace and precise muscle control.  Dancers will learn traditional dances such as the Highland Fling, Sword Dance as well as lesser known dances such as the Scottish Lilt etc.  Dances are performed to bagpipe and upbeat celtic music. Highland Dancing develops a sense of rhythm and co-ordination and offers an enjoyable disciplined art form. 

All studio highland dancers have the opportunity to participate in S.D.T.A. exams and perform at local events such as Robbie Burns Day, Celtic Christmas events. Dancers can, if they wish, compete at various highland games held throughout the summer and indoor competitions held in the other seasons.


Our studio is home to many award winners including Provincial, Canadian Inter-Provincial, North American Highland Dance Champions and runner-ups in the World Championships.
