Welcome to Thistle & Shamrock Dance Academy - Scottish Dance in Richmond

telling the stories and more

Kids and adults

learn self discipline and confidence that cross over into academics with higher scores and strong work ethics.  

Our Dancers love

sharing the stories of Celtic culture through the study of  highland dance while embracing modern & traditional music and history    


 show a spectacular combination of strength, agility, and movement to traditional bagpipes.  

Studies show

that a half hour of highland dance burns the same amount of calories as a soccer match. 

Both girls and guys

perform and compete together equally.  Initially it was a male only sport, but today girls and women out number the men.  

Your don't have to

have Scottish roots or heritage.  All people who love the athletic challenge and work out of Highland dance join our Clan of dancers.
