San Jose School of Highland Dancing


SJSHD strives to be an active participant in the Scottish community and share the Scottish cultural heritage through participation in private events, public events and performances.

  • We believe that dancers grow in skill and character when they participate in competitions.
  • We encourage our competition-ready dancers to participate in 4 local competitions per year.
  • We are affiliated with the British Association of Teachers of Dance (BATD) for medals tests and teacher training.
  • We strive to have an open, respectful, and focused learning environment.
