Lethbridge Highland Dance Association

The Lethbridge Highland Dance Association (LHDA) is a non-profit society organised to foster and preserve the tradition of highland dancing, with special encouragement to the young dancer, and contribute whenever possible to the community. It is part of the Alberta Highland Dancing Association, which in turn is part of ScotDance Canada, and adheres to the regulations of the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing (SOBHD), the world body that sets rules and standards for competitions and teachers of highland dancing.

 

The LHDA was founded in September of 1976, and makes its presence in the community felt by organising dance-outs (exhibitions in public venues), and an annual highland dance competition held each second Saturday in May. Additionally, dancers in the community often perform at cultural events such as Canada Day, Heritage Day and Burns’ night celebrations. Our instructor, Kandi Russell, teaches highland dance in Magrath and Lethbridge to dancers from Southwest Alberta.
