Scottish Day of Dance

DSC_0328Morag Simpson and Morag Young, PE Lead Officers from Falkirk Council Curriculum Support Team, along with Catherine Halcrow (PE Specialist), organised the Annual Day of Scottish Dance at Falkirk Town Hall on Friday 20th March 2015.

The event was a huge success with around 300 pupils attending. Once again the Jack Delaney band provided live music to accompany the dancers. The programme included a variety of dances with varying degrees of difficulty allowing schools to participate in as few or as many dances as they chose.

The day provides a great opportunity for schools to join in a fun celebration of Scottish dance, deepening their understanding of Scottish Culture at the same time. Pupils also gain the experience of mixing with other pupils from across Falkirk.

Thistle Wing Wheelchair Dancers again performed at the interval as did Larbert High S2 School of Dance Pupils. Both of these performances were very well received.

Our Provost Pat Reid showed his support again by attending the event and talking to many pupils and staff.

Both PE Lead Officers would like to say a big thank you to all the staff and pupils who worked hard at preparing the dances to make this day a big success. A great time was had by all.

Reminder: If you are interested in attending the Day of Dance in 2016 – There is an online resource available to assist you with the preparation of the dances.
