The Calder School of Highland Dance is based in Manchester, New Hampshire. It has been in operation since 2004. The school currently has 28 dancers ranging in age from 5 to adult. Our dancers range in ability from beginner to premier competition level.
The dancers at our school compete throughout the Northeastern United States, Canada and Scotland. They also perform at events in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Our dancers are a dedicated, cohesive group with a high degree of camaraderie. They are very professional and enjoy bringing their love of the Scottish culture to a wider audience. Their instructor, Sylvia Calder, is a native Scot, who arrived in the United States in 1999. Sylvia has been dancing since the age of 5 and has been a qualified highland dance instructor since age 16.
