The Schiehallion Dancers are a group of talented, dedicated SBJ Dance Studio students who enjoy the art of performing. The company first formed in 1967, and since over 500 dancers have enjoyed traveling and performing at many venues, the most prestigious being the Edinburgh Tattoo in 1981, 1986, 2003 and 2008. In 2007 the dancers performed in Belgium, France, Holland and Denmark.
