Dancing at the Highland Games

Dancing on the grass

On June 24, Member of the San Diego Branch and dancers from Orange County attended the  San Diego Highland Games and Gathering of the Clans, and performed three demonstration dances at the main stage after the opening ceremonies.

Kisses from the dancers!

This year our dancers participated in the Parade of Clans. Gary carried our banner high and Kathy tossed chocolate kisses to the audience as we processed passed the clan booths. When we reached the main stage, the MC introduced us, and shortly afterward we danced for those gathered to watch. Marjorie was our “caller” on stage (and took these pictures!)

A lovely day for all

The weather was just about perfect for indulging in all aspects of our Scottish heritage, from bagpipes and drums, to caber toss and hammer throw, and from shortbread to haggis.

Join us dancing!

The games always full of excellent music, from fiddle, bagpipe, drum, and vocal, to didgeridoo! If you’ve always wanted to move to the music, but don’t yet know how, please join us for a class! We happen to have one for beginners starting next week.
