Scottish Ballet's Find Your Feet

Community Information Evening: 7-8.30pm, 1 March at Kirkcudbright Academy 
In autumn 2012, Scottish Ballet will be visiting Dumfries and Galloway to deliver four full days of dance workshops, talks, events and taster performances in a project designed to bring Scottish Ballet activities to community participants of all ages and abilities. 
The final programme of events for Dumfries and Galloway will be created following a
community information evening which will be held on 1 March at 7pm in Kirkcudbright

We would like to welcome representatives from local groups and interested members of the
public to attend to hear more about Find Your Feet, and to meet local groups who would like to engage with us and generate ideas for activities. 
The project can cover a range of activities and events linked to Scottish Ballet’s productions and focus on creative dance, ballet technique, sport and dance, music, costume and design. We hope you can join us at Kirkcudbright Academy on 1 March.

If you are unable to attend but would like to know more, please contact Scottish Ballet on or 0141 331 6297

  1. I attended the consultation event with Scottish Ballet in Kirkcudbright last week – here in a nutshell is what they have to offer…

    Over four days in November – this is fixed – 16,17,18,19 – Scottish Ballet will facilitate or support in some way up to thirty events. Events could be something like… (and is for the whole community)

    A ballet cafe – where participants take part in class ending with social cuppa and cake!
    Stretching class - with rugby, football, mountain bikers!?
    A talk from leading practitioners/education officers from Scottish Ballet
    Ballet costume , for budding designers or parents of children who practice ballet
    Music that has inspired ballet

    These are only suggestions – have your say about what you would like to take place over the weekend. There are 50 funded places for local dance teachers from across Scotland to spend two days with Scottish Ballet, viewing the dancers at work, having workshops and training opportunities as well as performances by third year students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Modern Ballet course of a specially commissioned piece of dance. There will also be a live webcast event, reinforcing the connection with all seven communities at the same time and providing further access to the creative work continuing at base.

    If you have an idea for an event or want to be invovled, e-mail Scottish Ballet at the e-mail address above.
