Dance 2019

Join our mailing list!


Our village in the North West Highlands of Scotland is famous for festivals.  Ullapool Dance Festival welcomes everyone who loves to dance, whatever the style. Professional dancers, world class tutors, social dancers, enthusiastic locals and complete beginners are immersed together in an eclectic and informal celebration of dance performances and classes.

What kind of dance?

Our definition of dance knows no bounds! We can include hip hop, ballet, musical theatre, contemporary, Capoeira, salsa, African, Indian, traditional Scottish country dance, step and Highland.  

Social Events

We have social events - tea dances, discos, Ceilidhs, DJ Nightclubs and Flashmobs.  

Don't miss the great “Ceilidh and World Dance Party” mixing traditional Scottish dancing with professional performances.


We promote performance - from high quality cutting edge work to five-year olds stepping on stage for the first time.

Dance for everybody

We provide dance experiences in care homes, for people with a range of fitness levels, learning abilities and mobilities. We believe everyone should have the chance to experience the many benefits of dance.

Unique location

Our small venues and intimate Highland location allow performers, tutors and participants to mix in an informal and friendly holiday atmosphere.
