About us

Whistler School of Highland Dance was established in 2008 by Laura Grayson, two time All England Champion, judge on the SOBHD worldwide panel and teacher. Our school offers you the opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills and keep fit. As part of the school, you have the opportunity to take Highland and National Dance exams, dance at local and national competitions and take part in local displays and charity events...as well as having fun.

WSOHD offers 5 classes per week, based in West Allotment, Tynemouth, Ashington and still expanding, so watch this space!

We hold an annual competition every February and 2 exam sessions a year for progression through BATD exams.

Laura has built up her school to be a huge success, producing teachers, championship dancers and winners at local and national competitions.

We are a supportive, sociable group that would love you to be part of! All teachers are DBS checked and insured and hold official qualifications with the BATD (British Association of Teachers of Dancing)


Laura and some of the dancers have featured in The Snake Charmers newest YouTube videos's; 'Drowsy Maggie - Scottish Indian Punjabi Mix (The Snake Charmer)' and 'Irish Punjabi Party (New Way Forward) - The Snake Charmer ft. Raoul Kerr'
