Those looking to spend Christmas Eve in Scotland, but are unable to do so, won’t have to go very far.

On Sunday (Dec. 14) the Brigadoon Dance Academy will be hosting A Christmas Eve in Scotland at the Port Theatre.

According to Brigadoon Dance Academy owner and event organizer, Diena Henry, the event will include a mix of highland dance music and Christmas music.

“It’s a mix traditional highland dance with Celtic choreography,” she said. “We’re also using a lot of Christmas music.”

The event will also include guest piper Alastair Lee and his sister and dancer Fiona, along with The Pacific Gael Pipes and Drums.

Fiona Lee is an award-winning highland dancer who has performed at the Sydney Opera House in Australia. In 2007, she won the British Open Highland Dancing Championship in Scotland.

Henry is hoping that people who come to the event, walk away feeling the joy of Christmas.

“I hope that they [the audience] feel the Christmas spirit,” she said. “Just getting them really into that Christmas spirit. There is great music and they’ll be getting their toes tapping.”

A Christmas Eve in Scotland starts at 2 p.m. at the Port Theatre. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 children under 12.
