Tourism

We work in partnership with many tour operators, travel agents, hotels and guides to bring a traditional display of Highland Dance to entertain visitors.  A visit to Scotland is not complete without watching the precision of a dancers footwork over the Sword.  Performers meet guests, teach steps and chat about the history of our traditional art form.  

The Bachelorette

This project involved an exhibit of traditional dancing for the US series 'The Bachelorette'.  With a Highland Games theme, we provided a display in front of the formidable Castle of Leys.
