Scotland on Screen - March 2019

 

We were delighted to be back at The Queen Elizabeth Theatre, ISA in March 2019 performing our fifth show - Scotland on Screen. A collection of traditional and choreographed routines based around films, television and other 'on screen' events. It was a fantastic experiance for all our dancers, teachers and their families and we look forward to what our next show will bring. Plus we raised over £4,000 for local charities VSA and CLAN, who attended our Saturday Night Performance. 

Dance PROMS 2018

 

Dance Proms is a collective performance from various local dance schools around Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. 2018 was SSHD's first year to be invited to take part in PROMS and as the only Highland School to take part, we were so proud of the fabulous job from everyone involved!
