Piping for a Highland Dance Competition When preparing to pipe for highland dancers, here are some tips:
- If piping at a competition, talk with the competition organizer to get the most up-to-date information on the standard dance tempos
- Another good way to ensure you have the right tempo is to go and practice at a local dance studio. The teachers will be able to give you a heads up if the tempo is good or not
- When piping for an event that is not a competition, talk to the teacher or senior dancers about the tempo
- Attend dance competitons to hear other pipers play
- For a non-championship competition, play "fun tunes" for premier level dancers
