You can give the gift of Highland Dance lessons! Highland dance instruction is extremely beneficial to the growth and development of a child. If a family is struggling to pay for lessons, I don't want them to miss out on the benefit and routine Highland Dance provides to their child. You can donate a lesson for a family to anonymously use so that they don't have to give this up for their child. Each donation of $12.50 will provide a 1.25 hour lesson to a child in need and a donation of $60 will provide a full month of weekly lessons. *Please note that donations are not tax deductible. 

The Gibson School of Highland Dance is located in East Lansing, Michigan.  BATD certified instructor Allie Gibson Murad trains dancers of all ages and abilities at a high standard for competitions, performances, or just for fun! Class types may include traditional Highland Dance, aerobic Highland Hustle, social Ceilidh Dancing, and Highland Dance Theory.

If you are interested in a Highland Dance, Bagpipe, or combined performance at your function (wedding, anniversary party, Burns Supper, birthday party, etc...), please email Allie or fill out your information in the "Contact Us" section.  A highland dancer or group of dancers adds a lot to any function!  We can find you bagpipers and dancers depending on your needs.  Check out the videos of performances GSHD dancers have been in (in the "Photos and Videos" section) to get an idea of what your performance will look like!  We can accommodate your needs and provide a memorable and unique experience for you and your guests.
