INTERESTED IN HAVING YOUR CHILDREN INVOLVED?

Be sure to take the kids to see some great young performers at the Highland dancing and solo piping and drumming area. Kids their ages are performing at a high level and having a great time doing it! There are opportunities to find out how your children can be involved in Highland Arts. Ask at the dancing registration table, and find the Conservatory of Performing Arts tent at the Games to find out more about learning music and dance.
