Shorecrest's award-winning team of Scottish highland
dancers is a fixture in the Northwest Scottish community
and a long-standing part of our school's Highland tradition.
The dancers practice and meet on their own time and attend
studio lessons with Karen
Shelton School of Highland Dance. Karen has been instructing
the Shorecrest dancers for many years and has consistently
produced a top-knotch group.
The team performs at many school related functions including
assemblies, sports events, concerts, administrative functions
and graduation. Aside from school activites, the group also
performs at public and private events including parades,
parties, arts festivals, retirement centers and corporate
Many of Shorecrest's Highland dancers have competed and
consistently placed in regional contests. Recently one of
the team captains was even selected to go to the US National
Highland Dance competition as an alternate. This is a great
honor, as the US Nationals are to said to be the "Olympics"
of the Highland Dancing world.
Shorecrest's Highland Dance team is a unique and important
part of our proud Highland tradition. Be sure to catch them
performing locally with the SC Pipe
Band or leading the Shorecrest Highlander Marching Band
in the next big parade.
