Witness the grace, elegance, and infectious energy of Scottish Highland Dancing as talented competitors transport you to the heart of Scotland with their captivating rhythms and intricate footwork.

 

Savannah is proud to host the ScotDance Highland Dancing Southeast Regional Championships, one of six Highland Dance competitions held throughout the United States each spring. Seven age groups compete in four dances, with the top three winners in each group (from the Savannah Regional Championships) eligible to compete in the 2024 ScotDance National Championships.

The tremendous strength, stamina, and technical precision that accomplished dancers (Premier ScotDance Highland Dance SE Regional Competition in the morning) exhibit on stage come from years of independent training and collaboration with experienced teachers. Ambitious new students (Pre-Premier Highland Dancers compete in the afternoon) develop self-discipline and confidence as they learn to tackle the physical demands of Highland dancing.

 

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

ScotDance USA was formed to promote and nurture the traditions and heritage of Scottish Highland dancing in the United States by providing opportunities for the professional development of teachers and adjudicators and by creating a rewarding environment for dancers.

ScotDance USA is the successor of The Federation of United States Teachers and Adjudicators [FUSTA], which was founded in 1980. The founders of FUSTA were pioneers of their time with their creation of a community system and resource center for Highland dance teachers and judges in the US.
