Dance to the Piper

Bagpipers and Highland dancers are invited to attend "Dance to the Piper"!

Pipers who are interested in practicing to pipe for highland dancing are invited to participate. Colin MacKenzie will be there to offer instruction to pipers looking to learn tips and tricks when piping for dancers.

Dancers are invited to come and dance for the pipers, practice dancing to a variety of tunes, and learn how to "listen" to the intricacies of bagpipe music.

Pipers will gain real time experience and dancers will enjoy the practice and camaraderie as well as learn some Scottish Country dancing and an Ice Cream Social afterwards.

$5 admission for all dancers, parents, pipers, and spectators. Your admission includes ice cream and one raffle ticket.

All participants will receive a complimentary raffle ticket. Raffle tickets are $1. If you bring a friend to introduce them to Highland Dancing then you get an additional raffle ticket free!

Bagpipers who are interested -- please fill out this form.  We will contact you with more details about the event as the date gets closer.

Come and learn and join in the fun!
