Highland dancing is an athletic and very technical style of dance that requires strength, stamina, flexibility, and, of course, the right technique. Highland dancing is practiced in Scotland but there are a lot of competitions and dance schools outside Scotland, including the United States diaspora. Highland dancers dance on the balls of the feet, this is why it requires a lot of acrobatic work from them and there are usually cases of feet injuries. Scottish country dancing evolved from step dancing but it changed and adapted it, now Highland dancing involves a mix of step movements, but also upper body and hand movements. Still, due to its specific, the shoes are considered to be the most important element of dancing equipment.
