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!
