The MacArthur Dancers are a dance troupe from Cape Breton Island. The group promotes their strong ties and love of the Island's Gaelic and Scottish culture by bringing creative traditional dance choreography to stages all over the world. Directed by champion Highland Dancer and veteran Cape Breton step dancer Kelly MacArthur, the troupe has been running for 20 years, producing four generations of performers from all over Cape Breton. Top level Premier Dancers, they have performed all over Canada--winning awards, championships, and scholarships in traditional dance and Choreography--and are heading to Scotland in August to compete at the World Highland Dance Championships. They have performed with The Barra MacNeils, Summertime Revue, Mary Jane Lamond & Wendy MacIsaac, and Sprag Session, and also appeared on the tv program The Amazing Race Canada and at the Casino Nova Scotia Music Hall of Fame Gala. The MacArthur Dancers have been performing at Celtic Colours for numerous years, and are thrilled to be invited again this year.
