The Mt. Waddington Highland Dancing Association held their annual performance entitled, “Celtic Celebration 2022.”

The Christmas-themed show featured highland dancers from pre-school to adult. Although there was the usual component of traditional Scottish Highland dances that are hundreds of years old, there was also Irish dancing as well as modern “Highland-style” interpretive dance.

This year a commentator introduced each of the dances, providing some historical background as well as other interesting snippets about the steps and the costumes. There was a 50/50 draw and seven gift baskets given out before the show ended with all dancers coming onto the stage leaping and bouncing in a colourful, high-energy finale.
