TRADITION. WITH A TWIST.
Flings & Things is firmly established as one of the most exciting Highland Dance groups in the world. Since 2014 our Highland Dancers have been captivating audiences all over the world with their combination of dynamic, energetic choreography, vibrant costumes and unique, modern take on traditional Highland Dancing. Fusing the world class technique of our Champion dancers with intricate, rhythmical, innovative choreography, attitude and style, our explosive performances never fail to surprise and delight audiences, breathing new life into traditional Highland Dancing.
In addition to our choreographed performances we offer stunning displays of traditional Highland Dancing, regularly working with some of the very best Highland Dancers in the country - including multiple Scottish, British, European and World Champions. We frequently provide Highland Dancers for some of the most exclusive venues in Scotland, working with the country's leading entertainment specialists.
In recent years we have produced performances for a variety of prestigious events, including the Opening of the Scottish Parliament, New York Tartan Week, Commonwealth Games Baton reveal and Queen's Baton Relay, New York Military Tattoo, and a Private Military Tattoo at Gleneagles Hotel featuring 100 dancers. Our dancers were also thrilled to accompany the world famous rock supergroup MUSE on their sellout 'Drones' tour at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow.
Since 2013 we have provided dancers for the incomparable Red Hot Chilli Pipers. A worldwide phenomenon, the band have changed the face of traditional bagpipe music and attracted a whole new global audience through their self defined genre of 'bagrock'. For the last four and a half years, Flings & Things have managed and choreographed the Red Hot Chilli Dancers for corporate events throughout Europe, and have accompanied the band on US and European tours. Our dancers have performed at some of their biggest shows to date - from opening the main stage at T in the Park and kicking off the RBS 6 Nations in front of a 66,000 capacity crowd at Murrayfield, to headlining the BBC 2014 Commonwealth Games opening ceremony party, and rocking stages at festivals the length and breadth of the UK and Europe.
Our dancers also perform regularly throughout the world with the fantastic contemporary ceilidh band Whisky Kiss, and most recently they joined Scottish traditional music superstars Skipinnish onstage at their sellout show at Glasgow's famous Barrowland Ballroom.
From festivals to corporate functions, weddings to product launches, and ceilidhs to stage shows, Flings & Things provide the perfect blend of traditional entertainment for any occasion.
STAGE SHOWS & FESTIVALS
Our dynamic performance group is the perfect addition to any festival, variety show or tattoo.
