Dating back to before recorded history, the Highland dances of Scotland were originally highly athletic male dances of triumph, joy, and other reflections of emotion. Competitive Highland dancing as we know it began during the revival of interest in Highland culture during the 19th century. Women first began competing at the turn of the century. Highland dances require both athletic and artistic skill, and are danced both informally and in competition.
There are age classifications for the following groups:
- The Highland Fling
- The Sword Dance
- The Seann Tribuhas
Competition classes are offered in all disciplines of dance. Students in a competitive classes MUST also take a ballet class and a technique class (focus on flexibility and dance technique).
There are a minimum of 4 competitions per year in which all students MUST attend.
The competitive environment is a fun environment. Students are asked to be dedicated to their classes and to their teammates. In order for students to succeed at competition, they are required to attend all classes they are enrolled in. Failing to attend class WILL result in students being asked to leave the competitive team.
In classes, B.A.T.D. (British Association of Teachers of Dancing) exam work is taught. During the year, students wishing to participate in exams are asked to attend extra classes. Students are not required to take exams, however we do strongly encourage this. Exam entry fees and class fees are required in order to participate. Exams offer a basis for class curriculum and can lead to students becoming teachers.
