Sollus Highland Dancers
Pride in our culture and respect for others
Sollus Highland Dancers was formed in 2001. Their first tutor, Iain was connected to a Scottish regiment based in Londonderry but due to redeployment Iain was replaced by Mischa Dodds (Edinburgh) in January 2002. Mischa helped to build up the dance team and trained up current dance tutor Georgina Kee-McCarter.
The group in their short history have recorded phenomenal success in the competition arena, the highlight being crowned European & Ulster Choreography Champions.
Performing in showcases & festivals has seen some of the dancers travel right across Europe to places such as Holland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Belgium plus numerous events in Britain including Windsor Castle for the Royal Family.
Sollus Highland Dancers currently have 9 qualified tutors and teach almost 900 young people weekly in local schools and community groups. In 2019 the group were awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, an MBE for volunteer groups.
