Scottish dance

 on 


Australia is a very multicultural country. There is no question the English, Irish and Scottish emigrants dominate the national mix, but this is changing. Greece and Italy is strongly represented and in the recent migration waves Asian and Arabic nations are strongly visible too.

Sometimes this cultural mix creates issues but for most of the time people here leave in relative harmony.

This photograph of Scottish Dance performed by young girls at Martin Place was part of tribute to Scottish heritage in Australia. Lots of dancing, kilts and pipers around.

    Hello,

    I’ve just been browsing through your photography. It’s so interesting reading what you have to say about each photo. You’re very talented and I love your work.

    Just thought I’d let you know that this scottish dancing is called, Highland Dancing. And if you’d like to be more specific… you’ve captured them doing “propel-pivot turns” in the dance called “The Tulloch”. =)
