Stag & Thistle Highland Dancers
This is the inaugural performance for the Stag & Thistle Highland Dancers. The troupe is composed of adult premier highland dancers from across Canada that are coming together to share their passion and enjoyment of the Scottish culture. With many collective years performing locally, nationally and internationally under their belt, the group is excited to be coming together on an international stage for the Belfast International Tattoo 2019. Many of the dancers are members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Pipes, Drums and Highland Dancers that graced the arena floor last year.
The Stag & Thistle Highland Dancers will be wearing the Maple Leaf Tartan, Canada's national tartan, which reflects the changing colour of the leaves that grace the maple tree each season.
Led by director/choreographer Aileen Davis from Nova Scotia, who has herself performed around the world, at events including the Royal Edinburgh Tattoo, the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo and the Virginia International Tattoo, the Stag & Thistle Highland Dancers will bring some East Coast (of Canada) flair to the floor with a show that will have your toes tapping.
