Every year, more than 1000 highland dancers from across Canada, the United States, and around the world gather at the ScotDance Canada Championship Series, a five-day competitive event that includes the annual Canadian Championship. The dancers, ranging from ages 4-30, are committed athletic dancers, anxious to perform on a national stage with the best competitors from around the world. The event will be held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island from June 29 – July 3, 2017.
Competitive highland dancing is an art form and a sport that combines technique, swift execution of movement, agility, and strength. It is based upon the Scottish traditional dance form that has been passed down from our Scottish ancestors.
Sponsors of this growing annual event reach a captive audience of dancers and their families, an audience that reaches upwards of 3000 people throughout the five-day event. Dancers are predominantly Canadian; however, there is a contingent of international competitors as well.
As this annual event alternates between eastern and western Canadian locations, audience members have demonstrated a willingness to travel great distances with their families and are committed to supporting the competitive dreams of their children or other loved ones. Rooms blocked for the 2017 event at the host and surrounding hotels sold out in a mere 35 minutes – a new record! This year’s ScotDance Canada Championship Series is sure to be one of the largest yet.
