Mission

FUSTA is an organization of professional teachers and judges of Highland Dance who dedicate themselves to preserving and promoting Scottish culture and Highland Dancing in the United States. FUSTA acts as a resource center in the United States for all aspects of Highland Dancing. We provide professional development for our teachers and judges who in turn use their knowledge to improve the standard or our dance form. We sponsor the United States Highland Dancing Championships that give competitors of all ages a friendly environment to improve and show their skills.
