Highland dancing

Saturday & Sunday morning the Highland dancers fill the Expo Center Arena to compete on stage in a variety of traditional Highland dances.

Dancers perform the famous Highland Fling and the Sword Dance – danced by stepping over two crossed sabers – as well as the Sailor's Hornpipe, Irish Jig, Half Hullachan, High Cuts, Pas de Basque, Scottish Lilt, and Seann Truibhas in several classes from novice to premier, accompanied live onstage by a bagpiper.

There are also special events after the competitions, and on Sunday, Highland Dancing workshops are held on the grounds.
