Highland Dancing Awards

Well done to all of the Heriot’s Highland Dancers, who have been awarded various prizes for their second sitting of exams in 2020.

The Awards have arrived for the second sitting of exams in 2020, which took place just before Christmas.

The dancers managed to get back into a studio for a few months before the second lock down and took advantage of this by working towards their next level of the United Kingdom Alliance Exam syllabus.

Overall Distinctions were awarded to Elizabeth B, Jessica B, Zoe C, Hannah J and Kirsten M. The Juvenile Award went to Elizabeth B and the Junior Award went to Jessica B, these awards are for the most promising dancer of the day and are chosen by the examiner.

Alice M was the 2020 winner of the City of Edinburgh Highland Dancing Association Cup, this is awarded to the dancer with the most points for the year. Alice was fortunate to dance at one of the very few competitions last year, which very appropriately was held in the School Hall on campus.

Well done to all of the dancers who took part in the exams:

Eilidh A, Elizabeth B, Lucy B, Ailsa B, Jessica B, Zoe C,  Jonathan C, Ioli D, Kate D, Eva D, Keira H, Hannah J, Abigael L, Alice M, Rebecca M,  Kirsten M, Hannah R, Eleonora S,  Katie S, Anya V and Gia V.

George Heriot’s Highland Dancers continue to be taught online from Tuesday through to Sunday , with all dancers taking at least 2 classes weekly.
