Get Dancing for International Dance Day…
If you want to experience breathtaking dancers in innovative new choreography, a number of dance performances from leading companies are taking place across Scotland over the next few weeks. Or if you're interested in going dancing then the network of Dance Centres in Scotland provide opportunities for all ages, abilities and taste. The summer term is now under way at Dance Base in Edinburgh, Citymoves in Aberdeen and Dance House in Glasgow.
Bodysurf Scotland based in Findhorn is celebrating International Dance Day with a special staging of The Planetary Dance, devised by Anna Halprin. Bringing together people of all ages and abilities in a beautiful setting, The Planetary Dance is participatory dance rather than a theatrical performance. Open to all, this is the final event in Bodysurfs 4x4 Dance Body and the Environment workshop programme which has been supported by Creative Scotland.
Established by UNESCO and the International Dance Council, International Dance Day aims to encourage the public to celebrate dance in all its forms.
