Amethyst Dancers were formed in 1985 and since that time have traveled around the world, performing in Great Britain, Scotland, the Netherlands, the United States and Mexico. A regular act at the Nova Scotia International Tattoo, they have also been guests at the International Tattoos in Virginia, USA and Breda, Holland. Amethyst gave a 2 hour performance for Lt. Governor Myra Freeman, Nov 2003. Their combination of polished choreographed pieces, costumes and traditional dances are what make Amethyst a group in demand for charity fundraisers, cruise ships and conventions.
