Paisley 2021 funding brings Olivier award-winning dance company to town
25 July 2017
A project funded by Paisley 2021 has enabled children in Renfrewshire to learn dance from some of the best in the business by attracting an Olivier award-winning dance company to the town.
The right2dance company in Paisley secured more than £13,000 funding from the Paisley 2021 Culture, Heritage & Events Fund to finance a weekly free dance class for children aged 11 and above as well as to bring dancers from internationally renowned choreographer Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures & Re:Bourne company to Paisley to deliver a week-long series of workshops to the young dancers. The funding also allowed right2dance to run a series of taster sessions in schools throughout Renfrewshire.
