Jenn_K's Bio

I grew up in Southern Ontario, but I spent a good deal of time each summer in Cape Breton, where we would take in music festivals which invariably included highland dancing demonstrations. I was hooked from the first time I watched a Highland Fling. For months after returning home I would bounce around the house doing my version of the fling. Unfortunately we lived in a fairly rural area and there were no highland dancing instructors within 50 km so no lessons for me. :(

In 1995 I moved to a small community on Vancouver Island. In our regional district of 65 000 people, there were 3 highland teachers. I took recreational irish dancing for a couple of years and then approached my daughter's highland teacher to see if she would teach a ladies class. I rounded up a few other dance Moms from my daughter's class and we started taking lessons almost 5 years ago.

I entered my first competition in August of 2008, just before my 42nd birthday and have entered 2 more competitions since then. At my first 2 competitions we were lucky to have an adult beginner class, but at the last competition I was in a beginner 11 years and older class and dancing beside my daughter. There were 15 competitors in the class and I was the oldest by several years. I still managed to pull off a 4th in the Seann Truibhas and a 3rd in the Lilt. Not bad for an old girl, eh?
