Meet the Team

Anna Bain''s McKay School of Dancing has been actively organising and running monthly dancing competitions, annual competitions and major national championships for more than 30-years.

We also organise and run the Highland Dancing competitions at more than a dozen Highland Games events throughout the summer months. None of this would have been possible without the invaluable help and support of our team of dedicated volunteer helpers.
