About Us

Founded in 1947 and incorporated in 1978, the Manitoba Highland Dancers' Association (MHDA) is a non-profit organization run by volunteers. This organization provides our dancers with high caliber competitions, honoraria, scholarships and workshops.


MHDA holds six competitions within the year, two of which are Championships.


MHDA has four types of membership – Full, Associate, Teacher and Honourary. To dance at an M.H.D.A. Inc. Closed Competition, your family must hold a valid MHDA membership, which is due September 30th each year for renewing members.

Tartan Press

Currently we issue a Tartan Press newsletter for each competition we hold. This contains valuable information as to what is happening in the dancing world!


Fundraising is a major part of our organization’s focus. Fundraising events, together with our memberships and government grants, enables us to operate as a successful organization.


Other web sites and resources of interest to the highland dance community.
