On May 29th, 2005 we had our 'cultural concert' that we present every spring with the Performing Group and Band. It was titled 'Celtic Crossroads'.

I am in a few of the dances - Broadsword, MacNeill of Barra, High Road to Linton & Fear a Bhata. For the first three I am a Kilt (BSwords on the right hand side of screen, Mac & HR also on the right hand side of screen, I am the plus size one with the long blondish hair). For Fear I am a cloak at the start, then switch to a white dress on the left side of the screen.)

Please, when you click on the videos, hit pause to let the video load fully or the videos will stop and start marring the look of the dances. Sorry about any music difficulties as youtube sometimes has the music and dancing out of sync, though the Tribute looks dead on the few times I have watched it.

In order of the concert, here are the dances:

This is taken from out current newsletter.

SPRING CONCERT - Our concert will be held on Sunday June 11th at 2:30 and 7:00. Younger classes will likely be in the afternoon show (this will be confirmed in May). The show group will be performing in both shows. We know that you will enjoy our “Journey through the Highland Arts” as we explain the history and evolution of the pipes, drums and highland dancing. These shows are open to the public so feel free to invite all who you think may be interested. Cost will be $10/person, $5.00 for those under age 12. Tickets will be available in May.

The Theatre L'Octave is located in Marie-Rivier Catholic Secondary School at 711 Dalton Ave. If you are coming to Kingston via the 401 you take the Sir John A. Macdonald exit. Turn right at the first set of light and the first right into the school.

The Rob Roy Pipe Band and Highland Dancers of Kingston are a unique organization. It is one of only a few permanently integrated band and dancer groups. The Band was established in 1953 with the Dance Show Group forming in 1962.

Rob Roy is a strong community organization with a long history of offering instruction in piping, drumming and dancing. Rob Roy and its members perform in over 200 engagements (parades, community events, competitions) a year throughout Kingston, Ontario, the United States, and Scotland.

The band and dancers have performed in Prince's Street Gardens in Edinburgh, the Rob Roy Visitor Centre in Callender, and are one of the only bands that have been permitted to play inside the walls of Stirling Castle.

Rob Roy currently competes in pipe band competitions at both Grade 4 and Grade 5 levels (the Grade 4 band is the current reigning Canadian Champions). In the past the band has also played at the World Pipe Band Championships in Scotland. Many of our pipers, drummers and dancers also compete successfully in solo competitions.

Maybe off-topic, but I don't know if you've noticed that these videos start playing for a very short time, then stop for a long time, start playing for a very short time, then stop for a long time. The dancers are excellent dancers, and I am not saying they are not, but because of the starting and stopping, it can get a little hard to watch the videos. The videos would be easier to watch if they ran smoothly without the starting and stopping.

There is a trick to watching YouTubes. When you open the page immediatly (sp) click on pause and wait until the whole clip is loaded. Then you can watch the clip without stopping. Makes life much easier I find.

My daughter was in the "Ghostbusters Mass Fling" last fall...it was fun to watch and she enjoyed being in it. I wish we could download from the sight as well, it'd be nice to save it to disc for the memories later!

Here are three more videos from Rob Roy. They were taken at our Christmas Parent's Night back in December of 2004. My father took the videos and if you have any problems with them, blame him as he is not on here to defend himself! LOL

This first one is some of our up and coming dancers performing a Strathspey & Reel.

www.youtube.com . . .

The second dance is some of our younger girls performing a variation on the Sword Dance.
www.youtube.com . . .

The last dance is actually three dances in one, the first part is MacNeill of Barra then it changes to High Road to Linton, the third part is our Show Group coming on stage and getting into formation for a Strathspey in a cross.

Beating the Retreat - Broadswords

In May of 2004 I travelled to Edinburgh to visit my cousins (they are the reason I started to dance at age 5, I saw them perform at the Hotel Oritava in Edinburgh in 1978).

I took a bus tour around Stirling, Callander, Glasgow... one day, when I got back from the tour they told me that I had missed a show at the Castle called Beating the Retreat. I was like, 'gee, thanks for rubbing it in!' They then told me that it was being done again at Holyrood the next night.

The next morning I was up and on the MegaBus to Comrie via Perth to order my Plaid from the House of Tartan and somehow got to thinking that the show was at the Castle. When I got back to Edinburgh I went straight to the Castle and was told that it was at the other end of the Mile. Needless to say, it was the fastest mile I ran.

This is not my group, but the performance that I attended at Holyrood. All of the Dancers, Pipers & Drummers are all highschool students. They were performing for "His Grace" whoever that may have been.

Hope you enjoy! In the background, after the dancing you have a great view of Arthur's Seat, that is why I have taped all of the show.

If any dancers who are from Scotland who remember being in a 2 shows in Edinburgh on May 19th & 20th, 2004, let us know!

I have a few answers for the questions asked about the videos I have posted.

1) Costume Director - We have a wonderful woman named Ethel (also a parent to 3 of our Dancers and she is a Piping student as well, she is also a former Dance student) She does a great job with all of the costumes. In 2004 we finally moved into our own hall (it used to be a bingo hall) and have a place for all our costumes (not spread out between different peoples houses) and it makes life for Ethel a lot easier (especially when all of the costumes come back) - Ethel, all I have is the kilt, socks & blouse, LOL.

2) Stephiloudancer - The music we use for our Tribute is performed by 'Spirit of the West' and the tune is the 'Miller's Daughter'. We usually do the Tribute in our shows and this weekend's show will be no different. Will post another version of the Tribute next week.

Rob Roy Pipe Band & Highland Dancers will be having our annual Spring Cultural Show on Sunday, June 11th. I am having my father attend to tape the dancing and hopefully will have it up here by next weekend. If anyone is in the Kingston area on Sunday, we are having 2 shows 2:30pm and 7:00pm at the L'Octave Theatre at the French Highschool on Dalton Ave (by the 401 & Sir John A MacDonald Ave). Tickets available at the door - $10(adults) and $5(children)

Thank you for all of the positive comments about our group, we have a lot of talented dancers within our small group! It is nice to get such great feedback from other dancers and parents.

A Highland Journey Thru Time

The Rob Roy Pipe Band & Highland Dancers Concert - June 11, 2006 - Theatre L'Octave


This year Rob Roy combines their annual concert and student performances in a show that presents the heritage of Highland music and dance.

Follow along as our Master of Ceremonies, Hugh Goldie, shares colourful stories that detail the history of Highland Dancing, Piping and Drumming, and our Band dancers and students perform for you.

Highland Dance
The national dances of Scotland have evolved a great deal over the centuries. They were originally only performed by men. Our MC explains the history of the 4 Highland Dances followed by our senior dancers performing each one as it is danced now, and as it was danced 100 years ago.

The Highland Fling - www.youtube.com . . .
The Sword Dance - www.youtube.com . . .
The Seann Tribhuas - www.youtube.com . . .
The Strathspey & Reel - www.youtube.com . . .

The Cakewalk - This fun dance is often performed for shows and choreography competitions. Two of our youngest dance students, Paige & Paige, dance it for you today - www.youtube.com . . .

Tribute to J.L. MacKenzie - A favourite to dance, a choreographed in honour of James L. MacKenzie, who was instrumental in bringing Highland Dance to North America by teaching at workshops and summer schools. The performers are dancing to the music by Spirit of the West - www.youtube.com . . .

I liked the Skyedance one.

It seems strange though, to have your younger dancers doing choreographies when they haven't even mastered their basics.
