Ingram was selected along with 50 other Canadian dancers, as well as two others from Saskatchewan, including one from Regina and Saskatoon.

The Basel Tattoo featured 11 performances within nine days featuring over 1,000 dancers, musicians, and drummers from all over the world, including the United States, Scotland, Ukraine, Germany, and Mexico.

Thousands of people come to watch the event in the outdoor arena at the historical barracks.

The Quill Lake native has been dancing with the Quill Lake Highland Dancers and has even gone on to teach highland dance to other local dancers through the club.

The experience has not only been the most amazing experience for Ingram, but she is also able to show her students the opportunities available to them through highland dance, she says.

“It may be recreational to them sometimes but there are places it can take you. I never knew that dancing would take me to Switzerland, but it has.”

Ingram has danced in every province in Canada, as well as Scotland.
