The mission of the Southern Maine School of Scottish Dance is to provide elite training in the art of traditional Scottish Highland Dance in a fun and supportive environment.
Scottish Highland dance is one of the traditional forms of folk dance practiced in Scotland for hundreds of years. The traditions are carried on as dancers perform and compete at Scottish Highland Games all over the world. Scottish dancers are athletic, precise, and proud.
While Scotland and Ireland share many cultural similarities their traditional forms of dance are very different. You'll find Irish dancers in productions such as Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
Why should your child become a Scottish Dancer?
Scottish Highland dance is a highly athletic activity that encourages strength and self-confidence. Being a Scottish dancer is a title that students wear with pride. Scottish dancers tend to form strong social bonds with other students and they find support in a larger dance family. Dance provides opportunities for performances and competitions all over New England, the U.S., Canada, and Scotland. Scottish Highland dance is a perfect blend of culture, athletics, and exercise.
Future performances and competitions will be posted here.
