The performance by the Kiltie Dancers will combine classical technique with some more modern pieces, says Kate DeGood, highland dance instructor.
“The dancers will be performing choreographies and dances integrating highland technique with technique from non-Celtic forms of dance, including jazz, ballet and modern, as well as traditional highland and national dances,” says DeGood.

The Pipe Band, directed by Andrew Duncan, also will perform a mix of modern and traditional selections. In addition, the program will include a piece that brings both groups together.
“The opening piece with the pipers and dancers will be a nice highlight of the concert,” he says.
The performance will highlight the highland arts talent that Alma College has to offer, says Duncan.
“The concert will provide a well-rounded approach to the performing highland arts,” says Duncan.
