San Antonio Highland Games

Well our first competition of the season is nearing. The San Antonio Highland Games and Celtic Music Festival just put out the Highland dance entry forms. This is always one of my favorite games to go to, they have Highland dancing of course but they also have field events, sheep herding, Living History, along with some great celtic music. This year I'll be bringing y camera and hopefully get lots of photos. It is a small event that seems to be growing every year.

So dancers we have been practicing during the off season and now gearing up for competition time. keep up the hard work! Those of you that are working towards regional should be really focusing on technique we're in the last little stretch keep pushing hard and eat well and cross train. Very proud of the hard work, keep it up.

New web site

Now launching Murphy Highland Dance new website. 

Our school is growing and learning. 

Dallas school- We are working hard on the 2017 Championship steps, gearing up for regionals. Our numbers have been growing and we may have 4-6 dancers competing this year at the southwestern regional championship!. Love to see the good hard work and the practice that is being put forth.

We also have a lot going on for the Month of February. We will be doing medal testing which is something that I love. They go before an examiner and dance and also discuss dance theory.  It really makes the kids think.

Also in February  we will be participating in the Spring Fling Workshop! This workshop will be held in McKinney Texas, and the instructor will be Mary Beth Miller Klein. So we are looking forward getting to see other dance friends and dancing hard!

Houston News: We currently have Home School classes  being held at St. Thomas University. Our dancers are doing really well and getting ready to start to compete! So exciting as our new branch in Houston is stating to grow. 

Miss S. listening carefully! She is going to compete at regionals for the first time this year! super exciting.
