Founded in 1947 and incorporated in 1978, the Manitoba Highland Dancers' Association (MHDA) is a non-profit organization run by volunteers.

This organization provides our dancers with high caliber competitions, honoraria, scholarships and workshops.   We rely on membership fees, donations, grants and fundraising events.   The association functions on a year round basis, coordinating 7 competitions each year (two of which are championships).   The MHDA runs these competitions starting in the Fall and ending in the early summer.   Each year the association runs the Manitoba Closed Championships, where dancers are selected to represent Manitoba at the Inter-Provincial Championships held each year in the month of July.

Our dancers, ranging in age from four year to adulthood, are taught by a body of certified highland dance teachers.   All teachers are members of ScotDance Manitoba, a provincial affiliate of ScotDance Canada, and governed by the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing.
