Dumfries and Galloway Dance Day of Dance is Coming

Dumfries & Galloway Dance is a new regional approach to developing a thriving dance sector.  We believe this sector could bring together the brilliant activity that already happens across the region and create further opportunities to promote the region as a home for dance.

 

 

Dance Dumfries and Galloway sets out to achieve this aim, through creating a new Youth Dance Company, and setting up a touring network for professional dance companies.

 

Day of Dance offers a series of workshops followed by an evening Ceilidh interrupted by pop up dance performances.
