D is for Dance on ABC Wednesday

My D  Daughter  was a highland Dancer and now my grandDaughter dances competively. Thus we spent many summer weekends attending highland games and festivals in our area. I love the music of the pipes and the beautiful swirling colours of the Dancer's kilts. And most exciting of all are the awards ceremonies  at the end of the day's competition when the Dancers receive recognition for their Dancing skills in the form of medals and/ or trophies  for the highest scoring  dancers who receive a high aggregate trophy.

                                                     It was a successful Day of Dancing

I love highland dancing. Here in SW Ontario, we have several highland festivals and watching the dancing is a must when we go. Congrats to your granddaughter for winning for her dancing.

I've never seen that kind of dancing. It sounds exciting.

I've seen it. It's exhausting just to watch!
