Royal Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing (RSOBHD)

The RSOBHD was formed in 1950 as the World Governing Body for Highland Dancing.

The RSOBHD has gained in stature and status through its acceptance by the vast majority of highland dance associations, competitions, dancers, teachers and adjudicators around the world as the leading, indeed the only truly international, representative body. THE RSOBHD provides advice and information, represents the vast majority of those involved in Highland Dancing around the world, and is accepted by them as their World Governing Body.
The main function of the RSOBHD is to bring about co-operation between recognised associations, organisations, individuals and dancers connected with Highland Dancing.
