BATD Toronto Region Highland Christmas Festival 3rd December 2016

Premier Trophy Winners Toronto Highland Festival 2016
BATD HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS FESTVAL – SAT. DEC. 3rd 2016
Our BATD Highland Christmas Festival was another huge success. We had over 140 dancers, several solo choreographies, group choreographies, reel teams and broadsword teams along with a busy day of Pre-premier dances and Premier dances. A special thanks to our two adjudicators – Anne Sutherland and Deborah Wardope who helped make our festival run smoothly and to all there critiques each dancer received from all their dances.

A special thanks to all those teachers who donate towards our festival. This allows us to give special Christmas ornaments along with trophies as awards, cash awards to the Premier groups in all 6 places, and runner-up trophies.


The following dance schools and teachers donated towards our 2016 festival:

Aspects of Dance, Breck School, Diane Sanderson, Ferguson/Puseljic Family, Joy Allen School, Lorraine Symington, Kaye Spiller, Katherine Fitzgerald, Maggie MacMurchy, Rose School of Dance and Sheryl Joyner

Thanks also to Hank White who was our Santa and gave all the dancers a cholcolate bar and Lisa Breck for offering her studio for the Sunday exams. Thanks also to all those teachers who helped out on the day and donated to our kitchen.

We had a Christmas Ornament gift exchange again this year and was a great success and we will do in future. Thanks to Sheryl Joyner for looking after this.
