Dance Around The World

Get ready to join us on a journey around the world!

Aimed at children from P4 to P7, these creative sessions are the perfect way to end the school week. Each week, we'll go on an adventure to a new country, enjoy a workshop inspired by traditional dance styles and try tasty new snacks.

Learn about Bollywood Dance of Indian Cinema, dances of West Africa, circle dances of The Balkans, Kalamatianos from Greece, the Haka of New Zealand and, of course, Scotland!

There’ll be plenty of chances to make our own dances too, and in the last session, we’ll share what we’ve learned with friends and family.

Lunch space is also available from 12.30 to 1.30pm.

For the best experience, and to keep that passport looking nice and full, we recommend booking all six sessions.  Individual sessions are available for families unable to attend all six.  Our Creative Engagement team will be in touch with further information after booking.


Age guide: P4 to P7

Ticket price includes workshop & snack. Once you have booked a member of our Creative Engagement team will be in touch with further details 

*A £1 handling charge will be added if you ask us to post your tickets.



These sessions are led by an experienced Dance teacher and the activity is suited to all levels and abilities, we welcome anyone with access requirements.

A staffed social space will be provided from 12.30-1.30pm in the Empire Rooms before the event, for anyone coming straight from school that might want a place to have lunch.
