With Alice Wilkins
We are delighted to announce that we have received funding to deliver dance to the Ullapool area all year round!
Thanks to significant support from The Robertson Trust, Creative Scotland, People's Postcode Trust and Cashback for Communities and partnership with Eden Court and Dance Base we are employing our first ever Dance Development Officer. This work has initially been carried out by freelance teacher Julia McGhee who has already had a big impact with a lot of very happy people at her classes.
In January 2018 Alice Wilkins started full time as our Dance Development Officer covering Ullapool and outlying areas as far as Badcaul, Lochinver and Achiltibuie.
Alice will continue our successful classes and add more!
