Highland dancing is a competitive and technical dance form requiring technique, stamina, and strength, and is recognized as a sport by the Sport Council of Scotland.


In Highland dancing, the dancers dance on the balls of the feet. It is a form of solo step dancing, from which it evolved, but while some forms of step dancing are purely percussive in nature, Highland dancing involves not only a combination of steps but also some integral upper body, arm, and hand movements.

​Highland Dance Albuquerque is the organizer of the Highland Dance competition.
