We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience the many benefits of dance. 

We have an annual Dance Festival in early March and also provide a wide mix of high quality dance classes all year round.

News! 

Alice Wilkins has been with us for a year teaching a wide variety of dance classes (see the timetable). Alice is our Dance Development Officer meaning she also has responsibility for growing the participation and performance of dance in our area.  Alice requested to go part-time in order that she can also keep up her professional freelance career which we are happy to support.

Until we can recruit a candidate for the job-share position we are pleased to bring Mickey Anderson to deliver some of our classes from December to March 2019.  From a previous visit Mickey is known to many of our class participants and we look forward to welcoming him back. 

If you know anyone who may be interested in the job share please get in touch with becky@ullapooldance.org for more details. The post will be 12.5 hours/week based in Ullapool.
