Highland Games In and Around BC

The Highland Games of 2015 are in full swing and Shot of Scotch wants to make sure you can be a part of them! Its our favourite time of year that is for sure. And while Shot of Scotch wont be at them all, many of our dancers will be attending to compete in the solo premier dance categories. 

What are Highland Games?

It is a great gathering of Scots from Scotland or abroad to celebrate all things Scottish! Amongst the food, beer, and booths are three main events; Pipes & Drums - solo and band competitions (often called a pipers glen), Heavy Weight events, and Highland Dancing. Anyone and everyone is welcome!

The schedule of events in and around the Vancouver area is as follows;

Bellingham Highland Games - Bellingham, WA - June 5, 6, & 7

New York Military Tattoo 2015!

The 2015 New York Military Tattoo was a huge success! Shot of Scotch NYC was so incredibly privileged to dance two original choreographies in three separate shows this year! The choreographies were put together by former Highland Dancing World Champion, Rachel McLagan! Rachel and her dancers from Scotland's own Flings and Things along with the Celtic Cross Dancers from Canada joined us in this once in a lifetime event!

We also wanted to thank the ever talented and ambitious director of the event, Mr. Magnus Orr! This is your vision Magnus and we are so proud to be a part of it! Until next year! Slainte!
