Highland Dancing

 

 

Savannah is proud to host the USIR Highland Dancing Southern Regional Championships, one of six competitions held throughout the United States each spring. Five age groups compete in four dances, with the top three winners in each group (from the Savannah event) eligible to compete in the 2020 United States Inter-Regional Championships. 

Ambitious new students develop self-discipline and confidence as they learn to tackle the physical demands of  Highland dancing. Indeed, the tremendous strength, stamina, and technical precision that accomplished dancers exhibit on stage come from years of independent training and collaboration with experienced teachers.

 

In addition to perpetuating a great cultural tradition,, highland dancers appreciate the athletic challenges, competitive goals, performance opportunities as well as the opportunity to meet and become lifelong friends with dancers from other areas, both nationally and internationally.

Highland dancing was originally an all-male event. It wasn’t until the late 19th century that women started to compete.
