Highland Dance

Highland dancing, dannsa Gàidhealach, is a style of competitive dancing that developed in the Highlands of Scotland in the 19th and 20th centuries. It has roots in Gaelic folk dance, but has been heavily influenced by ballet. Although likely to date back to an earlier period, the first documented evidence of war dances being performed to bagpipe music was at the wedding of Alexander III at Jedburgh in 1285. This form of national dancing has been spread by Scottish migrants around the world and competitions are now regularly organized in Australia, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand and the United States.
