The term Highland dance or Highland dancing is used today to refer to a style of athletic solo dancing which developed in the Gaelic Highlands of Scotland. Highland dance evolved into its current form during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the context of competitions at public events (namely Highland games), where it is often performed to the accompaniment of Highland bagpipe music. Highland dancers wear specialized shoes called ghillies.

Highland dance has been subject to many influences from outside the Highlands. For example, it has been heavily influenced by the urban aesthetics of the patrons and judges of dance competitions since the nineteenth century. All text is available under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License – Wikipedia

Patriot Day Tattoo

The City of West Jordan is holding a Patriot Day Tattoo Friday, September 11th. This “tattoo” is not designed to be imprinted on skin but rather in the hearts of those who take part in this sensory feast. The Patriot Day Tattoo is patterned after the world-famous Edinburgh, Scotland Tattoo where pipe bands, drummers, military regiments, dancers have performed. The West Jordan Patriot Day Tattoo will remember Patriot Day with a 1,500-flag Healing Field, pipe bands, drum corps, the 23rd Army Band, Highland Dancers, a joint service color guard and other entertainment. A marketplace with arts, crafts, and ethnic foods opens at 5:00 p.m. and can be enjoyed before and during the Tattoo entertainment. For more information, call Julie Brown at (801) 569-5119.

Kilt Night Swagger with Heathen Highlanders

Piper Down Irish Pub presents Kilt Night Swagger with Heathen Highlanders and the Crawford School of Irish Dancing February 12th, 2011 at 9pm. 2/12/2011

Heathen Highlanders with Crawford Irish Dancers, Bagpipes, Irish Music, Celtic Dancing, Highland Dancing, Piper Down Pub, Salt Lake City, UtahIt all started one late October night in 2005; Mike, Ian and Dave met together on the Piper Down stage to show the crowd what they had. They struck in, and the bar went wild. From that moment on, the idea that was to become the Heathen Highlanders was born. Time passed, and the group has grown to be eleven members strong. They perform at bar shows, conventions, weddings, funerals, bar mitzvahs, and any other events imaginable. No job is too odd.

This rag tag bunch of miscreants are dedicated to blaring loud Scottish and Irish bagpipe music, emptying barrels of punch, wooing lonely women and having a lot of fun. They are easily recognized by their lack of uniformity and complete disregard for the rules of traditional piping. If you happen to run into one of these guys around Salt Lake City, don’t worry; everyone but Steve has received their rabies shots. Just drop a dollar in the jug and enjoy.

The Crawford School of Irish Dance can trace its roots back to 1983 when it began in Utah as the McTeggart School of Irish Dance, under the direction of Maureen McTeggart Hall A.D.C.R.G.  It is the oldest Irish dance school in the state of Utah and has been under the direction of Jill Polkinghorne Crawford, TCRG since 2002.
