Instructors

There are many wonderful dance teachers in the Portland area. All teachers are certified in Scottish Highland Dance instruction by the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dance.

Visitors are always welcome at the PHDA dance competitions. Competitions are a great place to meet local teachers, get your questions answered and introduce your child to the sport. See our event schedule.
