D&G Dance Practitioners Network - Meeting

Come and Join us in a Celebration of Dance
The Dumfries and Galloway Dance and Movement Practitioners' Network is holding its' Inaugural Meeting
on Friday 13th December 4.00pm
at St Ninians'
St Andrew Street,
Castle Douglas,
Come and join us in a celebration of dance with the opportunity to learn a new piece of choreography.

The Draft Constitution will be circulated in the next week.

The Dumfries & Galloway Dance & Movement Practitioners’ Network meets quarterly.

Our Network is free to join.

Each time we meet we choose a different venue in Dumfries and Galloway.
Since 2012 meeting in:

Castle Douglas Town Hall, 
Pilates with Jane Studio, Dumfries 
St Ninians’ Castle Douglas 
Wigtown Town Hall
The Ryan Centre, Stranraer

We meet to connect with other dance and movement practitioners. We set up dance events to encourage everyone to dance on a regular basis, whatever age or ability. 

Supported by CABN we have had our first Day of Dance which hosted full classes of many different dance disciplines we have in the region. Including free introductory sessions of Biodanza, Margaret Morris Movement, Zumba, Pop Dance, Arabian to Hollywood and Contact Improvisation. Thankyou to everyone who led workshops, took part, and provided information about their classes. It all made a great day.

Our quarterly meetings usually take place on a Sunday for two and a half hours with an hour of practical dance session.

We invite one member to lead a session for about an hour. We are beginning to engage with and understand the wide variety of styles and disciplines we have in Dumfries and Galloway.

Since 2012 the sessions have included:
Contemporary and Whacking
Margaret Morris Movement
Pop Dance
Contact Improvisation
Ballroom and Sequence
Scottish Country Dancing

Currently we are supported by CABN (Creative Arts Business Network). CABN have provided funds for Hall Hire. We do not pay for members to lead the sessions at the meetings. We are constituting the Network so we can raise funds to put on events, continue meeting and develop a website to act as a porthole for Dance and Movement in Dumfries and Galloway.
