Taste of Scottish Culture: Highland Dancing

Themed information and videos and virtual events for new students to University of Dundee in 2020-21

Highland dancing originated as a means of keeping Scottish soldiers fit and nimble.

If you view the videos you will see that the dances require stamina, strength and precision. Dancers learn and practice from a very young age to become champions.

Competitions are held all over the world and especially in Scotland at Highland Games.
