This leading dance performance school with their Dancing through Growth program, an education and community program for all ages, concentrates on dancers between ages 3 – 26 encouraging and nurturing Highland, Scottish Country and Step Dancing in a non-competitive atmosphere. Each component of the ISDS carries a solid commitment toward enriching the lives of young people and adults around the world through the art history and education of Highland, Scottish Country and Step Dancing.

Founded in 1980 by Sandra Crosby, the Inverglen Scottish Dancers have been developed as an educational group for students to learn traditional Highland Dancing, Scottish Country – the Social Ballroom Dancing of Scotland and Step Dancing, all in a non-competitive atmosphere. Ms. Crosby continues to introduce many new choreographed works each year which have achieved unprecedented success and recognition. Now in its thirty-sixth year, ISDS has grown into a multi-cultural student dance institution with an extraordinary legacy of providing opportunities for creative expression and artistic excellence that continues to set standards in the performing arts.

The Inverglen Scottish Dancers have achieved unprecedented success, bringing innovative and bold new works of artistic expression to audiences in their home city of Vancouver, across the country and around the world. The Inverglen Scottish Dancers have performed in the USA, Great Britain, Singapore, Australia and Europe, sharing their culture and representing Canada.

This group continues to offer training to students from ages 3 to adult. The group offers community programs open to any child who wants to study dance. Dancing through Growth brings each child the opportunity to perform in their community with no auditions or additional costs. Performances include many charitable events.
