HIGHLAND DANCE COMPETITION
Registration for 2018 coming soon!
To appreciate the skill of Highland dancers, watch for the precision & timing of their steps & their leg & body positions. Even their hands must be held in the correct position or points are removed.
Though all the dances are generally referred to as Highland dances, there are actually two categories: Highland & National. The Highland dances were originally performed by men, often before or after battle, and they require considerable stamina. The Highland Fling & Sword dance are the two most famous examples. Some National dances such as the Scottish Lilt are more graceful & less athletic. Other National dances such as The Sailors Hornpipe & Irish Jig are extremely athletic. The Sailors Hornpipe depicts the crew's chores & the movements of the ship. The Irish Jig is a salute to the Irish washerwoman.
In either category, you will find dances that require great skill & provide excellent entertainment.
The Highland dance competition will take place on Saturday, June 16, 2018 (USMW-10)
