Gretna born Dance Artist Emma Jayne Park and Independent Producer Peter Renwick are invested in developing a thriving dance sector across Dumfries and Galloway. 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. We are interested in promoting the brilliant classes that already take place, creating opportunities for local artists to enhance their network and bringing professional touring companies to the region on a regular basis.

Following over three years of research we believe we have a strong proposal that could create a joined up thinking approach to dance in Dumfries & Galloway and would like to hear your thoughts. If you are interested in dance as a participant, practitioner or audience member then you are invited to a public consultation where we will present our proposal and invite your responses so that we can build an even stronger dance community together.

Thanks to support from Creative Scotland, we are able to offer travel bursaries to people travelling more that 40 miles in one direction to attend the consultations. Please contact us to discuss this further.

The consultations are a child friendly environment and parents are welcome to bring children, however should you require support with child care costs in order to attend please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your needs.
