The Seaforth Highland Dancers.
Highland dancers have been a part of the band since the 1960's. The tradition was revived in 2001 and since then has gone from strength to strength.
The dancers, in their Dress McKenzie kilts, now entertain with our band and others at venues both in the UK and abroad with their vibrant displays including reels, strathspeys, hornpipes, the traditional Highland Fling and the audience favourite, the sword dance.
Highland dancing is physically demanding, and a fun and social way of keeping fit! Some of our dancers also choose to enter competitions with the SOBHD,(Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing), and have been very successful.
Anyone can join us, of any gender and age. No special equipment is initially required and once you are ready to perform with us we will even provide your costumes.
The classes are held, in the Loughborough area, at Hathern Village Hall, Dovecote Street, Hathern, near Loughborough. (satnav LE12 5HS), on Tuesdays 6.30-7.30pm and Thursdays 6.30-8.30pm. Classes cost £2.00 a session.
Leicester classes are led by Amanda Mackinnon, a fully qualified Highland Dance teacher who has been one of the World's top competitive dancers.
Amanda holds classes on Friday's from 6-8pm at St. Anne's Church Hall, Letchworth Road, (off Hinckley Road), Leicester (LE3 6FH), and also a class held every Wednesday at the main band practice from 7.30pm.
