Champion of Champions

Welcome to the SQRCHDI website.

SQRCHDI is a Non-Profit Organisation set up to foster and administer Highland Dancing in the greater South Queensland Area (Rockhampton to the Tweed).

Happy New Year to our members and friends
SQRCHDI look forward to the resumption of dancing competitions this year.
We have the official start date in Australia of 16 January 2021
and competitions resuming will be subject to the rules of lockdowns,
hall hire etc.

Forthcoming Events


After much deliberation, the SQRCHDI has made the decision that the
Champion of Champions Championship of Australia cannot proceed as planned this year.
The Champion of Champions Championship is the most prestigious National Championship
in Australia and it was felt that it would not be fair if all eligible dancers were
unable to attend due to the volatile nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although these Championships will not proceed, the SQRCHDI plans to host
an alternative event on the same dates and at the same venue.
The “Queensland Festival” will incorporate the Queensland Championships
and supporting events, and will be held on the 10th and 11th April at the
Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre, Carrara, Gold Coast.

We would like to thank the highland dancing community for their continued support
and understanding as we navigate these extraordinary times.
We warmly welcome all highland dancers who are able to attend this COVID Safe event.
The schedule will be available as soon as possible.
