History of the School


The class has been running in Inchinnan for over 50 years, started by Daisy Mackenzie (known to those in the village as Daisy Sweetin) Daisy successfully taught and guided her dancers to competitive and show level as well as supporting local events before sadly passing away a few years ago. The school is now run by Michelle who attended Daisy's dancing since the age of 4 and now has over 25 years experience, and taught alongside Daisy for a number of years.

All highland classes are taught by Michelle who has been dancing and competing for 30 years with a vast experience and knowledge of Highland Dancing, with the aim of passing all this knowledge on to her pupils. Michelle is a fully qualified teacher, examiner and adjudicator with the Scottish Offical Dancing Association (S.O.H.D.A) which is the organisation all dancers will be members to in order to compete and sit exams.
