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.
The championship takes place on the Saturday of the Worlds weekend. The morning competition will commence at 10am. Afternoon events begin at approx 12.30pm.
