Dance and Fitness Class Descriptions
Scottish or Cape Breton Step
Highland Dance is a high energy traditional dance form kept alive as a competitive sport. Dancers hop as many as 144 times per minute! Classes focus on strength and precision as dancers work toward high technical standards for footwork, timing, and overall control and expression while building a repertoire of dances to perform locally and compete throughout the southeast region of the United States.
Step Dancing is a percussive form of dance that is informal and low impact accompanied by lively fiddle music including jigs, reels, and strathspeys. This hard shoe dancing is similar to tap dancing and Irish dancing and is enjoying renewed interest in Scotland. For the past few hundred years, this style of step dancing has been an integral part of social gatherings on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.
Highland Adventure is a creative movement experience based on Scottish Dance. Jump, stretch, stomp, bend, sneak, and spring your way through Scotland and Scotland's connections to North Carolina! Best suited for 2 and 3 year olds,
