Join us to learn Scottish Highland dancing. All ages, all levels
welcome. No experience necessary! New dancers please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Highland Dancing is a long tradition and an integral part of any highland games because it is both an art and a sport that provides young people with the opportunity to build self-confidence, discipline, perseverance and athletic ability. It also promotes the preservation of Scottish culture and ensures that the knowledge and understanding of Scottish heritage is preserved so it can be passed onto the next generation.
Scottish Highland dancing requires skill, strength, and endurance to perform the highly technical dance which derived primarily from solo step dancing. Highland dancing involves both complicated footwork performed on the balls of the feet, in conjunction with upper body, arm, and hand movements. The traditional Highland dances include The Highland Fling, The Sword Dance, Seann Truibhas (pronounced ‘Shawn Trewes’), Reel of Tulloch, the Irish Jig, and the Sailor’s Hornpipe, among others.
We have competitive and non-competitive dancers ranging from age 4 up to adult and enjoy performing in and around San Antonio to promote our Scottish heritage.
