For Highland Dancers who love to compete and have fun!
The International Gathering of Scottish Highland Dance offers Highland Dancers of all ages and level of abilities an amazing opportunity to compete and showcase their skills in the magical world of Disneyland® Paris.
Now in its 7th year The International Gathering of Scottish Highland Dance has grown into a large world renowned event including a wide range of competition and performance opportunities.
Make the most of your weekend
After a fantastically successful first Paris International Gathering Championship last year we are delighted to announce an increase in the number of Championship age groups for this year. In addition to the Juvenile 7 and under 12 years category we have confirmation from SOBHD that we may run single age 12 years, 13 years, 14 years and 15 years Championships in the Junior Section as well as the Adult 16 years and over category.
With over 1000 visitors over 4 days each year, and to accommodate the volume of entries/performances undertaken during the weekend all dancers must be available from 9am on Friday 24th November. As such we strongly reccomend arrival on Thursday 23rd November for all groups. This ensures you can not only take part in all dancer and competition, pre-parade, showcase and choreomagic opportunities but also make the most of the magic of Disneyland® Paris. Please note: final event schedules will be confirmed closer to the event based on numbers attending and opportunities scheduling may vary from previous years (i.e pre-parade day etc).
Thursday 23rd to Monday 27th November 2017
Each November Highland Dancers from all around the world gather together to compete in the SOBHD "The Magics" competition, test their choreography skills in our exclusive Disney® themed Choreomagic Challenge
, showcase their highland dancing skills as part of Disney Performing Arts® Onstage programme, and delight the Disney® crowds as they join their fellow dancers in a special Disney Performing Arts® Pre-Parade through the Disneyland® Park.
