The New Zealand Academy of Highland and National Dancing

Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo - 15th Feb 2016

It is a privilege that the Academy will be part of this prestigious event, where our Academy dancers will join dancers from both Scotland and Scot Dance to form the team of 70 highland dancers. We wish our Academy team of 25 dancers every success as they commence their rehearsals this evening in preparation for the Opening Performance on Thursday. If you are fortunate enough to be able to attend the Westpac stadium during the performances – enjoy – it will be a wonderful spectacle. We hope to be able to publish photos as and when they are available. A list of the team will be published on the Youth Page.
