Skye says, “THAT WAS GREAT, AIESHA!”
Aiesha says, “THANKS.”
Kristy says, “ALRIGHT, SKYE,
YOU TAKE IT AWAY.
Aiesha says, “SKYE'S DANCE MOVES ARE COOL
AND AWESOME, HOW SHE CAN
JUMP THAT HIGH.”
Kristy says, “YEAH! WHOO!”
Aiesha says, “BY THE WAY, WHAT
IS THIS DANCE CALLED?”
Skye says, “ITS CALLED THE HIGHLAND FLING.”
Aiesha says, “DO ONLY GIRLS DO IT?”

IT'S PROBABLY THE OLDEST
FROM THE ANCIENT
Aiesha says, “I'VE NEVER TRIED
HIGHLAND DANCING BEFORE.”
Kristy says, “I HAVE A CHALLENGE FOR YOU.

SO WHO CAN JUMP THE HIGHEST?”
Skye says, “KRISTY MADE US DO
A JUMPING COMPETITION.”
Kristy says, “OH, NICE! TRY IT
ONE MORE TIME.:
Aiesha and Skye jump in the air. A ruler measures their heights.
Skye says,”I THINK IT WAS A TIE.”
Kristy says, “YEP, ALRIGHT,
Aiesha and Skye say, “YES!”
Kristy says, “SO, BASICS
FOR HIGHLAND DANCE.
THE FIRST POSITION
IS OUR HANDS ON OUR HIPS
AND OUR FEET IN A GOOD FIRST
POSITION. GREAT. SECOND
YOU PUT ONE FOOT OUT
TO THE SIDE. GREAT.
AND THEN WE'RE GONNA HAVE
ONE ARM COME UP,
AND WE HAVE VERY SPECIAL FINGERS
IN HIGHLAND DANCE:
THAT IS, OUR THUMB COMES
TO OUR MIDDLE FINGER
AND CONNECTS THE DOT,
AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN WE HAVE
LITTLE DEERS ON OUR HEADS.”
Aiesha says, “KRISTY TAUGHT US TO DO THIS
WHEN WE'RE DANCING.
IT'S LIKE A DEER.
A DEER SOUNDS LIKE: WAA!
WE HAVE TO ADD JUMPS.
OUT AND BACK AND FRONT AND BACK.
WONDERFUL! ARE YOU SURE YOU
HAVEN'T DONE THIS BEFORE?”
Aiesha says, “YEAH, IT'S MY FIRST TIME.”
Kristy says, “AMAZING.”
Aiesha says, “KRISTY WAS FUNNY,
HELPFUL AND NICE.”
Aiesha and Skye dance in sequence.
Skye says, “I THOUGHT IT WAS REALLY FUN,
AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE
A LOT OF ENERGY
AND MUSCLES TO JUMP IN THE AIR.”
Aiesha jumps up and down as she raises her hand to the sky.
Aiesha says, “IT'S REALLY DIFFERENT TO
THE DANCING THAT FILIPINOS DO,
BECAUSE WE DON'T REALLY DO THAT
MUCH JUMPING. WE JUST DO HOPS.”
Aiesha, Skye, and Kristy hold their fingers together as they hop on one foot. They twirl.
Skye says, “AIESHA DID REALLY GOOD
AT HIGHLAND DANCING.”
Aiesha says, “IT WAS REALLY FUN TO LEARN
BECAUSE I COULD
JUMP IN JOY AND HAVE FUN.”
Aiesha and Skye do the floss dance in the studio. They do a cartwheel.
Skye says, “AIESHA'S NICE AND FUN
AND I HAD A LOT OF FUN
DANCING WITH HER.
AIESHA'S FREESTYLE MOVES
WERE REALLY GOOD.
I THINK IT'S BECAUSE SHE DOES
A LOT OF DIFFERENT TYPES
AND I THINK SHE'S REALLY,
REALLY GOOD AT IT.
SHE TAUGHT ME THE COFFEE MAKER
AND IT WAS REALLY FUN.
I'VE BEEN WONDERING HOW
TO DO IT FOR A LONG TIME.”
Aiesha and Skye continue to do modern dance moves. Aiesha jumps in front of a mirror.

DANCING AT THE PARTY TOMORROW?”

Aiesha and Skye say, “HI, EMILY!”
Emily says, “DID YOU BURN UP THE DANCE
FLOOR FOR ROBBIE BURNS DAY?”
Skye says, “WE SURE DID.
WE HAD SO MUCH FUN.”
Emily says, “AND AIESHA, WHAT
DID YOU THINK OF IT?”
Aiesha says, “I LOVED IT. I NEVER TRIED
THIS KIND OF DANCING BEFORE.”
Emily says, “WELL, I HAVE MORE
IN STORE FOR YOU.
AIESHA, YOU'LL BE LEARNING
HOW TO DRESS UP FOR THE PARTY,
AND SKYE, YOU'RE GONNA BE MAKING
SOMETHING RATHER HARDY.
MAN, MY RHYMES ARE TIGHT TODAY!”
Emily says, “OK, TEXTING YOU DETAILS NOW.”
Aiesha and Skye say, “BYE, EMILY!”
Aiesha says, “CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW EVERYONE

Aiesha says, “THE SPORRAN REMINDED ME OF,
LIKE, THE PURSES.”
Linda says, “THERE'S NO POCKETS
ON THE KILT.
AND THEN WHAT
DO YOU THINK THIS IS?”
Aiesha says, “A KNIFE.”
Linda says, “WHY WOULD THEY
HAVE THAT, YOU THINK?”
Aiesha says, ”TO PROTECT THEMSELVES?”
Linda says, ”ABSOLUTELY. BUT NOW IT'S
JUST PART OF THE OUTFIT.
AND THEN THEY HAVE
THE PRINCE CHARLIE JACKET.”
Aiesha says, “LINDA REALLY TAUGHT ME A LOT
ABOUT SCOTTISH CLOTHES.
THESE ARE SO LONG.
WOULDN'T THEY TRIP ON THEM?”
Linda says, “THEY ACTUALLY TIE
AROUND THE LEG.”
Aiesha says, “WHAT ARE THESE?”
Lina says, “IT'S A KILT PIN.
THIS IS THE MACDONALD CLAN PIN,
WHICH IS SKYE'S CLAN. SO,
YOU READY FOR A CHALLENGE?”
Aiesha says, “OF COURSE I AM.”
Linda says, “IF YOU CAN BRING ME BACK
FOUR OF THESE ITEMS
I GIVE YOU FIVE MINUTES-
THERE'LL BE A SURPRISE.
READY, STEADY, GO!”
Aiesha says, “I'M READY FOR THIS CHALLENGE.”
Aiesha rushes through the Scottish Company store. She grabs a pair of shoes and stockings. She pauses and poses in front of a mirror. She continues to search with 2 minutes left. She reaches for a pin on a high shelf. She approaches a man in a kilt.
Aiesha says, “EXCUSE ME, CAN YOU
COME WITH ME?”
The man in the kilt says, “OK.”
Aiesha leads the man in the kilt back to Linda.
Aiesha says, “LOOK, I GOT EVERYTHING!”
Linda says, “OH, WOW!”
Aiesha says, “I FOUND ALL THE THINGS
ON THE MAN.
THE SPORRAN, THE VEST, THE KILT,
THE SHOES AND THE STOCKINGS.”
Linda says, “GOOD. IT LOOKS AS IF YOU'RE
GONNA GET YOUR SURPRISE.”
Aiesha leaves a dressing room wearing a plaid skirt.
Aiesha says ”HOW DO I LOOK?
OUTFIT WAS REALLY COOL.”

TO VISIT THE KILT STORE.
