Young people in Cumnock put their best feet forward during the summer at a dance workshop.

Themed on circus acts and the excitement of the Big Top and organised by East Ayrshire Council’s Creative Minds Team, the summer school took place at Cumnock Academy at the end of July.

Here, young people learned Hip-Hop and Jazz from professional dance artists, with a separate Parkour School, funded by the Scottish Attainment Challenge, helping all young people find their niche.

The dance school ran for a week with a finale show taking place on the Friday in Cumnock Academy’s assembly hall.

Councillor Fiona Campbell, cabinet member for skills and learning said: “The feedback from the dance school has been superb and it was well attended.

“All our young people said that they had enjoyed their time, learning new dance skills and making some great new friends as the sessions progressed.

“It was especially pleasing to learn that many who had attended previous dance schools helped younger children to boost their confidence, as well as building on their own amazing artistic talents.

“It really is lovely that these popular dance schools have grown so much in size and scope, offering our brilliant young people so much fun in their summer holidays.”
