Members of Sollus Highland Dancers have returned from a hugely successful trip to The International Gathering of Highland Dance in DisneyLand Paris.

The group of 44 dancers performed alongside and competed against dancers from all over the world including Canada, Australia and Scotland. The event began with a prestigious and magical parade through Disney Land which the Sollus Highland Dancers were proud to lead.

Sollus returned with five trophy winners, Demi-Lee Street, Caitlin Cooke, Rebekah Loughlin and Leanne Lapsley. Eight junior members of the group also competed in a Disney Choreography Competition where they came away with the top prize for best characterization and costuming of the dance. The competition had 67 entries but the Sollus team came out on top with their interpretation of the ‘Mickey Mouse Club House March’.
