Highland Dance Competitions

ScotDance Cards and EHDA Memberships

All dancers wishing to compete in “open” Highland Dancing competitions must have a ScotDance card. To obtain a card for your dancer, please download the 2024 ScotDance card form [here].  Fill in the appropriate information and bring it to Dawn to sign.  When the form is submitted, please ensure to include a cheque for the fee as well as any additional items as required for a new card/renewal or change of status.  The information on what to include is located on page 2 of the form.

Dancers residing in the EHDA (Edmonton Highland Dancing Association) region may also participate in “closed” EHDA competitions.  An EHDA membership is required in addition to a ScotDance card.  The EHDA membership form can be completed [here].
