Scottish Highland dancing is a form of dance that evolved from ballet and is like its more athletic cousin. Dancers compete individually and are marked on their agility, strength, endurance and precision. Many dances were originally danced by the men of the Scottish Army to train for battle. These days, you will most often find these dances performed by teenage girls but still with the same intensity and spirit. Many successful Highland dancers made their start as the children who were just “too much” for ballet class. Tartan Hearts School of Scottish Highland Dance offers lessons for beginner to champions, and to both children and adults. Classes are taught on Sundays from 9-10:30 a.m. in Studio 3.
