Scottish Highland

Scottish Highland dancing is the perfect dance form for the highly energetic student! Emerging in the early 19th and 20th centuries, Highland dancing is a mix of the Gaelic folk dance repertoire and traditional ballet. The dancing requires lots of technique and stamina, dancing on the balls of the feet in traditional kilts, tartan plaids, and sometimes Aboyne dress. While the majority of competitive Highland dancers are now female, the dance form also originated with warrior rituals imitating epic deeds from Scottish Folklore to demonstrate their strength, stamina, and agility. Instructor Elizabeth Kabrick is so excited to share her expansive knowledge of this traditional dance form through its technique and history with EGD students.
