The RCMP "H" Division Highland Dance Troupe was formed in 2008 as a component of the RCMP Pipes & Drums (Nova Scotia) with the intent of adding another element of entertainment to the pipe band’s performance offer.
The troupe is comprised of experienced dancers, most of whom, after years of dedicated training and practice, have earned their 'Premiere Dancer' designation. Individually, the dancers each bring an extensive list of competition and performance experiences, both locally and internationally.
Like the members of the Pipes & Drums, all the dancers are volunteers taking time from their schooling or careers to perform with the Pipes & Drums at concerts, Tattoos, ceremonies and other special events. While the troupe performs both Highland and National Dancers they also choreograph their own dances.
The troupe wears specially designed dance costumes to add a contemporary feel to their choreographed numbers and each costume proudly displays the RCMP tartan in some manner. This attire beautifully compliments the Pipe Band and their dress attire.
The RCMP Highland Dancers (Nova Scotia) are under the direction of Aileen Davis and Madeleine Waddington.
