We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience the many benefits of dance.
We have a Dance Festival most years in early March and we now also provide a wide mix of high quality dance classes all year round.
Alice Wilkins and Mickey Anderson are experienced professional dancers providing our classes (see the timetable).
Every so often Ullapool Dance Festival needs to take a breather. This is one such year because we’ve been focusing on developing regular dance classes to our area. We are still planning a ‘Dance Weekend’ featuring two professional works from acclaimed company Plan b and opened by our own Ullapool Youth Dance Company (March 8th) and a Ceilidh/Party/DJ Night on the 9th. There will not be the usual workshops but here is our regular class programme running up to that weekend.
