Granite City pupils to get their dancing shoes on


Granite City pupils will don their dancing shoes for an end of year showcase extravaganza which will take place at the end of March.

Aberdeen University Dance Society have organised an end of year event which will showcase local dancing talent from pupils across the city who have been taking part in dance classes thanks to the help of Active Schools Aberdeen.

Sport Aberdeen’s Active Schools Coordinator for the St Machar area has been working with Kittybrewster School in preparation for the event, running a weekly after school dance class since last summer, encouraging more young people to participate in physical activity.

The end of year performance, named ‘Dancing through film’ will take place at Aberdeen Arts Centre on March 25th.

Graeme Dale, Sport Aberdeen Senior Development Manager (Young People), said:

“This is a fantastic chance for more young people to get involved in physical activity and highlights the importance of partnership working throughout the city.

“This is the second year that pupils from Kittybrewster have been involved in the end of year dance showcase and I have no doubt that this will be a great success once again. The event is a brilliant opportunity to inspire young people to get involved in different and fun activities whilst encouraging an active and healthy lifestyle and I would like to thank Aberdeen University Dance Society for inviting local children to be involved.”

Margaret Clark, Head Teacher at Kittybrewster School, said:

“I am delighted that the pupils at Kittybrewster have been given the chance to participate

in dance sessions organised by our Active Schools Co-ordinator, Kim McRobbie. The Dance Showcase is an exciting opportunity for the children to enjoy showing off their skills and I know they will perform very well.”
