The Federation of United States Teachers and Adjudicators (FUSTA) was established in 1980 to promote Scottish Highland Dancing and culture in the United States and to provide a "community" system for teachers and judges of Highland dancing. FUSTA spearheads the United States Inter-Regional Championships (USIR) held annually. This championship is our version of the "Olympics", with our dancers qualifying to represent their region to compete for the honor of United States Champion. But the events don't stop there, in addition to the US Championship there are 2 additional days of competition for all dancers, primary to premier, choreography competitions, social events, and a banquet dinner honoring our FUSTA Hall of Fame inductee, FUSTA scholarship winners and the 2016 USIR Finalists. The USIR rotates among the 6 geographic regions which encompass all 50 states: East, Midwest, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest, and West. The Midwest region is proud to present the 2016 USIR in Grand Rapids, Michigan, July 13-17, 2016.
