Scottish Highland dancing classes cover the invigorating solo steps of kilt-clad performance. Students learn to craft tunes on a practice chanter during bagpipes lessons, or rehearse the pronunciations, phrases, and haunting song cadences of Gaelic. Each class requires no experience and accommodates a wide age range—Highland dancing sessions can begin at age 3, whereas bagpipes classes admit ages 7 and up, and Gaelic lessons welcome teens and adults.
Callanish School of Celtic Arts
When Maggie Carchrie voyaged to Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, she hardly expected to discover a passion that would win her the U.S. Mòd Women’s Championship in Gaelic Singing two years later. She was immediately enchanted by the traditional music of the region, planning her future travels around the areas of Cape Breton and Scotland and diving headfirst into the Celtic culture. With a college degree in music therapy and a resume that boasts subsequent studies at the Ceòlas Music School, she built a foundation for a life filled with award-winning Celtic performance and education. She lays claim to two albums, books several East Coast showcases throughout the year, and furthers the reach of Celtic stylings through the concerts and CDs of Mermaid Productions.
Maggie draws from all of these experiences to act as director of the Callanish School of Celtic Arts. There, she instructs students of all ages in music, dance, and lyrical language, managing a non-competitive venue for guests to experiment with age-old harmonies and master a brogue without having to install a second tongue. Thomas Leigh also teaches bagpipes and Gaelic, with an M.A. in Gaelic Studies from the University of Aberdeen. From the high-stepping choreography of Scottish Highland Dance to the signature keening of the bagpipes, she outlines several levels of melodic techniques, all of which are steeped in rich history.
