Ullapool Dance Festival March 1-4
Set in exceptionally wild and beautiful North West Highland scenery, our remote fishing village is famous for hosting great festivals. Now in our seventh year, we bring an exciting chance for beginners, experienced dancers and professionals to be immersed in dance.
Styles are expected to include traditional Indian, musical theatre, contemporary, Urban Streetdance, traditional Scottish.
A timetable of ‘come and try’ classes is designed to have something for beginners of all ages and abilities - no previous dance experience is needed. Many adult and child classes are held next door to each other so everyone can take part at once. Experienced and professional dancers can try out new styles or attend specialist masterclasses.
Top professional performances include the acclaimed Dance Ihayami. Both amateur and professional dancers will take part in the eclectic showcase “Get Ullapool Dancing”.
Don't miss the big hit of the festival - the great “Ceilidh and Latin Dance Party” mixing traditional Scottish dancing with professional Latin performances and plenty of chance for all ages to join in. Ullapool festivals are so special because the small venues and intimate Highland location allow performers, tutors and participants to mix in an informal and friendly holiday atmosphere.
Classes and venues are open and accessible to all abilities with some especially suitable for people with limited mobility or lower fitness or energy levels. Make contact to discuss any special requirements or the appropriateness of individual classes.
All class places must be booked in advance and last year many sold out! Bookings will open on this website in February 2018.
