Cape Breton Step Dancers
Stepping Out

Cape Breton Step Dancing began in the early 1700s when Gaelic speaking settlers from Sctoland's Western Isles and Highlands started arriving in Cape Breton, the Island portion of Canada's Nova Scotia.
   This form of hard shoe dancing, which has similarities to Irish STep Dancing and to Appalachian Clogging, flourished and evolved in Cape Breton while it disappeard in Scotland.

Kyla Groeschel's School of Highland Dance

Dating back to the 11th or 12th century, Highland dancing tells a story or reflects upon a way of life. Requiring both athletic and artistic skill, dances tended to be performed by men to ommemorate martial victory, conflict, joy, etc. as well as being used as an exercise by warriors.
   Long hours of practice are required for a dancer to become proficient enough to dance the intricate figures as lightly and gracefully as they should be danced.
