It’s almost our favorite time of year again…SCOTFEST! Friday, September 18 through Sunday, September 20 River West Festival Park in Tulsa will transform into the Scottish Highlands. Join us as we perform on the dance stage and hop on the Scotrock stage with a few fantastic Celtic rock bands!
We will perform on the dance stage (to the right of the entrance) at 11, 1, and 3 on Saturday and 12 and 2 on Sunday. This year we’ll have a record number of Highland dancers performing, and we’ve cooked up some great choreographies and new takes on old dances to share with you!
Check out a few photos from our performances last year!

Cady and Maddie went to their first dance competition at the end of September, and they did so well! Cady got a third place, two fourth places, and a fifth place, and Maddie got a second place and a fourth place. They each placed in all their dances and got a stamp on their cards, which means they are 1/6 of the way to graduating from Beginner to Novice!
It was a banner year at Scotfest for the Ladymon School of Scottish Dance! We performed 136 dances within 30 hours, were invited to dance with Celtica, and had twice as many dancers as in previous years! We’re looking forward to next year, when we can raise the bar once again.
