Photo: LAURA WALTERS By LAURA WALTERS Highland dancing has made a resurgence, and not just among the Scottish community. Thistle Highland Dancers principal Anne Bum- stead said a mix of people have returned to Highland Dancing. It was dying out, but it's becoming popular again.'' Ms Bumstead took over a school in Marton more than five years ago, and never looked back. Two years ago she opened the Feilding branch of Thistle Highland Dancers, when she moved to the town. Ms Bumstead had 15 pupils, aged from four to 19 years. And they all enjoyed it, she said. Well, they keep coming back.'' Ms Bumstead said there were three big Highland events run in Rangitikei. The Rangitikei and Districts Open Championship was held in Marton for the first time in October, and the support was great, she said. There were 65 competitors at the championships, and easily 200 people. There was a huge response from the community.'' Ms Bumstead said highland dancing was not just for old, or Scottish, people. There was a mix of people who enjoyed highland dancing, she said. The older ones remember it from years ago. And the younger ones are intrigued.'' Everybody knows the sword dance and the high- land fling, she said. Everybody loves watching it, but every parent hates watching it'' because if a dancer knocked a sword they were automatically disqualified. The teacher and judge said the Turakina Highland Games, held at the end of January, were always a big event. They were first held in 1864, and were New Zealand's oldest on-land sporting event. Ms Bumstead qualified as a teacher in 1992 after dancing for 10 years. She moved to New Zealand from Britain. She said the quality of dancing in New Zealand was much higher than in Britain. They are much more competitive,'' she said. It's a Kiwi thing.'' Ms Bumstead said a lot of students stayed until the end of their training. And she encouraged them to pursue teaching. In 2012 four students at Thistle Highland Dancers would start their teaching training. However, when the dancers hit their teenage years they were often distracted by boys, she said. Obviously you can't keep everybody.'' Rebekah Gribbon, and her sister Emily, had both been dancing since they were five. Rebekah said competitions were great. I've made heaps of friends.'' The girls were both in the Premier grade at com- petitions, and have had to compete against each other before. The dancers were competitive on stage, but friendly off-stage, Rebekah said.
