Assemble and Leap 2021!

In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the RSOBHD (although celebrating a year late!) and with the support of Creative Scotland, ‘Assemble and Leap’ is back! Following the success of the incredible 2010 show, we are once again bringing together the Highland Dancing community in recognition of this significant milestone in the history of our World Governing Body.
We would like to invite all dancers who will be aged 16 years and over from the 1st of September 2021 and who have won an Open Championship to take part in the concert, which will be held in Perth Concert Hall on Sunday the 12th December 2021. As COVID restrictions are starting to ease we hope there will be no set backs and the event can go ahead as planned. The event will be held subject to public health and local authority guidance.
If you would like to be part of cast, please follow the link below to complete the application form – everyone who meets the criteria will be included. Applications close Sunday 6th June.  More information about the show will be released over the coming months so keep your eyes peeled on the RSOBHD website and Facebook page for more details.
This is an amazing opportunity to celebrate our heritage and to work with an outstanding cast of dancers and choreographers to showcase Highland Dancing to the world!

Congratulations Jean Swanston

Congratulations to our 2020 Atholl Clasp recipient – RSOBHD Vice President Jean Swanston. Jean was presented with her Atholl Clasp on Friday 13th November by Atholl Dancing Association Chairman Liz Douglas at our online AGM.

Jean is pictured with Liz Douglas – the Golden Jubilee banner was made by Anne Pealing who was the ADA chairman in 2000, when the Atholl Clasp was first presented at Blair Castle. The design was the winning design for a t-shirt, which Jean still has!
