Highland Dancing is a traditional athletic solo dance form originating from the Highlands of Scotland. It is often performed to Scottish bagpipes or other upbeat Celtic music. In its current form, dancers can compete at outdoor Highland Games and other indoor competitions under the governance of the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing.
Highland Dancing is educational, fun and a healthy activity that improves the co-ordination of your child and promotes quick thinking, discipline and self-confidence. There are no short cuts to good dancing. It is important that from the very beginning children are taught the proper basics.
You should choose your dance studio as carefully as you would choose your doctor or dentist. Your child is your most precious asset. It is an honour for a teacher to be entrusted with the artistic training of a child.
“When you take dance lessons, you learn steps and you learn steps and you learn steps, it can go on for a long time. And then one day, you just learn to dance, and it is so different.” (Bill Austin)
