The Pocono Highland Dancers

b_200_0_16777215_00_images_fundraising_PoconoHighlandDancers.jpgA troupe of young dancers who entertain, compete, and keep alive the ancient art of Scottish Highland Dancing. Established in 1975, the dancers perform locally and compete in the United States, Canada, and Scotland. Our pin is the thistle, the national flower of Scotland. History tells us that in 1263 Vikings were intent on conquering Scotland. The clever Norsemen removed their shoes to sneak up on the sleeping Scots. One of the Vikings stepped on a thistle, shouted in pain, and alerted the Scots. Scotland was saved! The thistle is a tough, prickly flower that grows wild and beautiful throughout Scotland. Highland Dancers are tough and beautiful. Hard work and ancient dances blend to become a work of art.
