Dance Base lays foundations for stars

The Capital's Dance Base is appealing for future stars to come forward as part of a major programme expansion.

The group has expanded its Thomas Morton Hall site in Leith, and is adding 21 dance classes to its existing classes at the Grassmarket centre.

Dance Base has been able to expand its programme after receiving extra funding from the Scottish Arts Council.

Dance Base's artistic director, Morag Deyes MBE, said: "Dance Base used to be a National Centre for Dance without a dance studio, so we held classes all over the city and the Thomas Morton Hall was the star amongst those venues.

"What a delight that we are revisiting that amazing building and also connecting with the vitality and character of Leith. We are excited to be a part of it again."
