We are delighted to announce that we have received funding to deliver dance to the Ullapool area all year – for a second year!
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.
In January 2019 Alice wished to go part-time in order to pursue opportunities to perform. Currently her workload is shared with Mickey Anderson until March 2019. Alice and Mickey have done a fabulous job but will move on to continue their dance careers further afield from March 2019. They leave many people across our area very keen to continue to dance regularly and we are now recruiting for a new full-time Dance Development Officer.
