2020 Trip

After the success of the 2019 Scotland Trip, GSD dancers have been invited to perform as featured performers at the 2020 Northeast South Dakota Celtic Faire in Aberdeen, South Dakota.

Those interested in traveling must know (and be able to perform on their own) a Highland Fling and Sword Dance. Choreographies and Ceilidh dances will also be incorporated into the 2020 shows.

2020 is Exam Year

This Spring GSD dancers will partake in their bi-annual Medal Testing. This important exam allows dancers to receive feedback from a trained dance examiner from Scotland.  Dancers are required to master technique and steps according to the standard of the SOBHD and are judged accordingly (unlike competition where dancers are judged against each other in their competitive field)

We have the right class for you, pick one or more & become part of the GSD family!
