Highland Dance Tasmania's aim is to promote highland dancing as a leading aerobic activity of choice in Tasmania, whilst preserving its unique heritage, beauty and tradition. Highland Dance Tas seeks to provide accessible, safe and healthy options for Tasmanians to pursue Highland Dancing as a dance form, sport or recreation, in both formal and informal environments.
Our objectives are:
- To establish Highland Dancing as an activity of choice for greater numbers of Tasmanians, promoting the dance form as a vehicle for healthy and personally challenging lifestyles.
- To develop and motivate participants (dancers, teachers, judges, officials, administrators and volunteers) to the level of skill, knowledge and competence in Highland Dancing, that they desire.
- To provide quality competition and participation opportunities at all levels.
