Competition

It's Never Too Late To Congratulate!

Just last weekend one of our Premier dancers, Anna Fitzgerald, competed in the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in North Carolina! Growing up in Cary, NC, going to Grandfather Mountain was a staple for Anna and her family. So after moving to NYC last year, going back home to compete was especially nostalgic this time. Anna was even able to reunite with the competition coordinators Pat Johnston and Amy Mooney. Anna credits Pat for helping her return to the world of Highland Dance and she couldn’t be more grateful for Pat’s lasting influence on her dancing career!

Despite the free sunburn, Anna had a wonderful time competing in the three-day event! She competed in the Pre-Championship on Friday and placed in all four events! She also competed in the National Dances on Sunday and placed in the Jig! Go Anna! All of your hard work and dedication to this sport has really paid off, and everyone at Shot of Scotch NYC is so proud of your accomplishments!

 

ScotDance Canadian Championships!

Shot of Scotch Vancouver wishes the best of luck to all dancers competing at the Scot Dance Canadian Championships this week in London Ontario! 

Remember "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard" (Tim Notke). And now the hard work is over so JUST DANCE!!

We will be eagerly waiting for the results!

Competition Season!

It is officially Summer so that means it is officially competition season for Highland dancers everywhere! And the members of Shot of Scotch NYC have already been busy collecting medals and taking names! 

Emily Ritter, Premier Highland dancer and SoS NYC member recently competed in her 20th Kansas City Highland Games; yup we said 20th! And if that isn't impressive enough Emily finished 3rd overall in the Highland dances and placed FIRST in the Highland Laddie during the National dances! GO EMILY!

Another competitive milestone came when our founding member, and BATD certified teacher Kendra Monroe, escorted two of her young dancers to their first Highland dance competition at the Rhode Island Scottish Highland Festival! The girls competed in the Primary and Beginner categories and performed beautifully! We wish them great success in their future competitive careers as Highland dancers!

Lastly up next Anna Fitzgerald, another Premier Highland dancer and SoS NYC member, will be competing this July at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games! We cannot wait to cheer you on Anna! Good luck!
