I am excited to share with you what I have learned over the course of, well, my life! I have been performing since I was a young lassie, and developed quite a passion for Scottish Highland and Step dancing as well as the music and the culture.
I have been teaching dance since I was 16 years old, and haven’t stopped since, so it felt very natural to obtain a Bachelor of Education degree. Prior to that, I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Nutrition and then went on to enjoy a career as a Registered Massage Therapist. Whole body health and wellness has always been a way of thinking for me, and sharing that with others. Today, I continue to work as a Registered Massage Therapist at my home-based business, I teach Highland dancing, Step dancing, and Stott Pilates lessons at my home as well as at international camps, workshops, and educational facilities. I continue to perform locally and internationally, and now, I am furthering my passion to teach and share my knowledge through online instructional videos. I’ve always had a desire to share what I have learned and I am excited to take my teaching to new audiences!
-AWARD WINNING DANCER-
"Sabra MacGillivray, the glory of the world, whose subtle choreography, flawless execution and breathtaking lightness – her feet tap and kick and point but the centre of her body is still and her arms float in arabesques above – outline the finest kind of highland dancing and step-dancing you will ever see."

Steps with sabra
on a wooden bridge series
watch the whole series on YouTube
Along the Celtic Shores Coastal Trail, which stretches along the coast from Port Hawkesbury to Cheticamp, one comes across many wooden bridges. My family and I walk, 4-wheel and snowmobile the trail frequently. I’m always curious how these wooden bridges sound and feel to dance on so decided to try a few steps out on the bridge in Troy back in September 2020, which became the first in this wee series. Surprisingly, many of these little bridges have built-in sprung floors! My daughter, Ruby often joins me and showcases her growing repertoire of steps. Shown here are my latest 4 videos in this series. Subscribe to my YouTube channel to see the whole series. If you ever have a chance to get to the Celtic Shores Coastal Trail along Canada’s Musical Coast, don’t miss the chance to try a step on a wooden bridge! Thanks to the wonderful organizations below for the video shares and support.
