Do males compete in the hornpipe? I have tried to find youtube videos of boys doing the hornpipe and haven't found any.

In short, yes. I found the first image on a Pinterest page, called Highland Dance, and the second is from The Internationals entry booklet.

You probably have seen them, but because their costumes look the same (as opposed to other dances) it is not as obvious.

They do compete- and it's the only dance where the outfit is completely identical to females (save some possible differences in outfit tailoring) :)

In fact I remember a competition where a male dancer forgot his hornpipe outfit and borrowed one off a fellow competitor - who was in the lineup in the dance right before him. Quickest change ever!

They do compete in it, and generally place quite well!
