...........................

Where it all began…

One night in 2014 a friend online messaged Nikki and said, ‘Why don’t you design a Highland Dance brand, there is no one out there doing that kind of thing’.

The answer was ‘OK, yes, why not’ and that was how HD was born.

At the start we were called ‘The Highland Dance Gift Co’… but within weeks we became The Highland Dancer.

So, overnight, the Facebook page was set up with some onscreen mock ideas for clothes and gifts and then marketed direct into the Highland Dance social media pages.

We had an instant hit with our first online sales from local Dunoon and our first stall at the Isle of Bute Highland Dance Festival in the Pavilion Rothesay in April 2014. 

Realising that there was a market and the people and dancers supported us and liked the ideas, HD continued to grow to develop its products, design and website. While always focusing to build up a strong social media presence on Facebook and Instagram.

The Team

The Highland Dancer has been actively built, designed, created and grown by artist Nicola Jones.  Having a BSc in Multimedia gave her the trained skills needed to multitask and build the brand and it’s online presence.

There has always been a development and sounding board team behind the scenes listening and looking at design ideas and all things business.

Without the input and support of these dedicated few HD would not be where it is today as it has been this active collaboration with these talented and thoughtful people that have helped to help steer HD where we are now.

"Recommends The Highland Dancer. 21 August 2018 Just received another package from the Highland Dancer, this time a hoodie for my son who is a piper! He is competing at Cowal for first time and didn’t want him feeling left out as dancers have their hoodies. So at the last minute I asked if a hoodie could be made up before we leave, fantastic, fast service and hoodie is just what we wanted! Had a number of things made from them and always happy with them! Definitely recommend!"
