RSPBA Highland Dancing Championship

  • Highland Dancers
  • Dancing feet

Introduction

Scottish Highland dancing is regarded as being one of the most sophisticated forms of national dancing in the world.  It is a highly competitive and technical dance form that requires many hours of practice and training over a period of several years to perfect.

In many ways, Highland dancing evolved from solo step dancing, but while some forms of step dancing are purely percussive in nature, Highland dancing involves not only a combination of steps but also some integral upper body, arm, and hand movements.  It takes a massive amount of stamina and arm/leg strength, no matter how old the dancer.
