Highland Dance:

Scottish highland dance is ancient in origin, dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries. These dances, in the beginning, were expressions of both personal and social emotions: joy, victory, or perhaps symbolic of one's work. The dances described here are highland dances used in competition: Highland Fling, Sword Dance, Seann Truibhas, Sailors Hornpipe, The Scottish Lilt, The Irish Jig, and Flora Macdonald's Fancy. Dancing starts at 9:30  a.m. Saturday September 12, 2020.
