The Halifax Highland Dancing Association, HHDA, was established in 1978 to promote Highland Dancing in Halifax and surrounding areas. HHDA is a not for profit, parent sponsored organization that relies entirely on its volunteers.

 

In addition to promoting longstanding cultural traditions, highland dancers learn and appreciate the athletic and performance challenges, competition, and camaraderie of the sport.

 

HHDA is the proud sponsor of the Halifax Highland Open Championship and Spring Competition each year.  Benefits of membership include, in addition to competitions, workshops with top ranked Canadian and international teachers and adjudicators and scholarship opportunities.
