Biography

Hailing from Edinburgh, Chloe is an ambitious and dedicated highland dancer.  Her exceptional talent and natural ability has earned her many championship titles including United Kingdom Champion (two years running), East of Scotland Champion (three times), West of Scotland Champion, North of Scotland Champion and All England Champion.  In 2013, she was the only Scottish dancer from her age division to qualify for the Word Highland Dancing Championships, putting her in the top 20 dancers aged under 16 in the world.

Chloe has a passion for the origins of highland dance, and the associated legends and stories. She hopes to one day establish her own dance school and instill the passion and pride she has for the heritage of highland dance in future generations of dancers.

How the Award Helped

Chloe's award enabled her to continue training and competing in traditional Scottish dance.



My passion for highland dance is not only with the actual performance but also in its rich history. When I look into my future I cannot imagine a life without dance.
