Shot of Scotch Vancouver

Hello 2016!

We have had a busy new year at Shot of Scotch Vancouver as word continues to get out about our dancers! This January we hosted our first "Whisky Fling" fundraiser at Shebeen Whiskey House in the heart of Gastown. A huge THANK YOU to all of our fabulous friends, family and supporters that came out to enjoy an evening of dance, whisky, food and social fun! All money raised will go directly back into our mission of creating high quality, innovative highland dance performance. Also last month, we tackled four Robbie Burns gigs in one week, finishing off at the beautiful Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. The new "fan favourite" seems to be our rendition of the Lochaber Sword dance involving actual shots of Scotch Whisky. You will have to come see it for yourself!

As we move into February, we hope for some sunshine as we will be joining "Sky's No Limit - Girls Fly Too" in this years Chinese New Year Parade. You can find out more about their program at This program fits well with 2016, the year of the fire monkey, and we plan to hone our ambition and take some calculated risks in the spirit of the monkey. It's going to be a good one!
