Dallas Highland Dancers


Welcome to the home of the Dallas Highland Dancers! The DHD strive to share our passion by educating others in traditional Scottish Highland dancing. Our studios offer an outstanding learning environment where instructors, dancers and their families can focus on learning and perfecting dance technique. In addition, the DHD take pride in celebrating Scottish culture. With these goals in mind, the members of the DHD enjoy dance education while building lasting friendships that continue long after the bagpipes fall silent. All are welcome in the DHD dance family, regardless of age, sex, nationality, color, creed, or experience. With the DHD, you belong!

Founded in 1992 by Fiona Robertson Alpaugh, the Dallas Highland Dancers have a long history of providing excellent instruction in Highland dancing. Our dancers range from four years of age to adult and from beginner to advanced levels. The DHD perform in approximately 20 shows per year and dancers of all ages and experience levels are invited to participate in these exciting performances at local and regional festivals, parties, parades, and demonstrations. Highland dancing offers students a unique opportunity to explore the traditions and heritage of Scotland, as well as to gain coordination, grace and self-discipline. It provides both a structured and creative outlet for dancers of all ages.
The Dallas Highland Dancers are currently accepting new students at the Mesquite location. Classes are available for all ages and levels of ability and experience. The DHD welcomes both male and female dancers in all classes. Potential students are encouraged to attend a complimentary class to learn more about Highland dancing and to determine if Highland dancing is a good fit for them. No registration is required, however, we do ask that you set up an appointment with Fiona (dancingkilts@hotmail.com) for classes in Mesquite. The studio facility requires that all participating dancers complete a liability waiver prior to the start of class. Dancers taking class in Mesquite should arrive a few minutes early to complete this waiver. Please visit our "Classes" page for more information on courses currently offered.
In 2011, the Dallas Highland Dancers announced the formation of a competition group, for dancers who are interested in taking their dancing beyond a recreational level and challenging themselves in local, regional and national competitions. We invite you to explore our web site and to contact us for additional information or to sign up for classes at dancingkilts@hotmail.com.
