Holly MacDonald-Bent

Highland Dance

Holly has been involved in Highland Dance since the age of six. She represented the province on the Nova Scotia team at the Canadian Championships multiple times and finished her own competitive dancing in 1993, at the World Highland Dance Championships in Dunoon, Scotland.

In 1987 she began her own dance school in Pictou, which has been very successful. Her students have won championships and runner up spots across Canada, USA and Scotland. Several other students have gone on to teach young dancers themselves and to perform in International Tattoos around the globe.

Holly has served as the provincial registrar and secretary of Scotdance Nova Scotia and is currently the area organizer for the Scottish Dance Teachers Alliance Maritime Exam Tours and the president of the Pictou Celtic Arts Society.

She can’t wait to be back teaching once again at the Gaelic College this summer, sharing her passion for dance.
