During the year, our dancers perform several shows in our Community and throughout Southwestern Ontario. Dance shows give our new dancers an opportunity to gain confidence on the stage, and demonstrate their talents in front of a receptive audience. These shows are also a great opportunity for our more experienced dancers to work with and mentor our younger dancers!
Families are encouraged to check the dance board in the Parents Loft to sign up for upcoming Show and Performance opportunities. Our Sim School of Highland Dance Facebook Group page also provides updates on upcoming Shows and Performances.
Sim School of Highland Dance is thrilled to participate in many community events and special activities. This gallery includes photos from some of our favourite places to dance outside of the studio and away from the competition stage!

Year End Recital
Our 2018-2019 Year End Recital was held in the Western Counties Wing Auditorium at Parkwood Hospital in London. We were thrilled to share a mix of traditional and choreographed dance numbers to our friend, family and veterans in attendance.
It was a great opportunity for the dancers to show off all the hard work they have put into Highland Dance in 2018-2019!
A Silver Christmas
25th Anniversary Show - 2015
"I have held the hands and hearts of hundreds of children. They have all had a story in my own heart, as they all have such special gifts to offer through their involvement in dance. I believe that I was put here not only to share my love of dance, but also to show children what life skills they could build upon with its discipline.
Perseverance, friendship, goal setting, and hard work are a few of the lessons I know I have passed along the way.
I have spent over a decade with many of my students and we have all grown together. I have learned as much from my students as I have given to them. I love staying in touch after the dancing is over….these kids mean the world to me." Sherry Sim
