Highland Dancing


The Seaforth Highland Dancers.

Loreley Dancers 1

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 vibrant tartans, now entertain with our band and others at venues both in the UK and abroad with their energetic 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 from 4-5 years onwards. No special equipment is initially required and once you are ready to perform with us we will even provide your costumes.

Classes are held on Wednesdays and Fridays at the Ratcliffe College, Fosse Way, Ratcliffe on the Wreake, Leicestershire LE7 4SG. Wednesday classes run from 7.00pm-8.30pm and Fridays from 7.00pm-9.00pm. There is no charge for classes although you will be asked to purchase your own shoes.
