Experience the Magic, Passion and Fun of Highland Dance in Disney!
The International Gathering of Scottish Highland Dance offers Highland Dancers of all ages and levels of ability an amazing opportunity to compete and showcase their skills in the magical world of Disneyland® Paris.
Now in its 8th year, The International gathering of Scottish Highland Dance has grown into a large, world-renowned event, including a wide range of competition and performance opportunities.
Created by dancers for dancers!
The International Gathering of Scottish Highland Dance takes the tradition and passion of Highland dance and sets it amongst the Magic and Fun of Disney, giving dancers the platform to showcase themselves to an international audience, experience something incredible and make memories that will be treasured for a lifetime.
In order for you to maximise both your competition and Disney experience for 2018 we will be running a new schedule for The Magics, Championships and ChoreoMagic. With separate performance days for ChoreoMagic and The Magics/Championships, we are able to offer a more balanced combination of dancing and Disney fun, keeping in mind the toll a large competition can take on competitors!
