ICG dance auditions

DANCERS in Lanarkshire are being invited to audition to be part of the opening ceremony at the International Children’s Games.

The auditions are for all dancers aged 13 and over and will take place in the dance studio of Motherwell College on Saturday, from noon to 3pm.

Dancers just need to show off their dance skills - there is no need to prepare anything - for the opportunity to take part in a professionally choreographed mass cast performance at Fir Park Stadium in Motherwell on Thursday, August 4.

The opening ceremony will fuse two contrasting styles of street and highland dance in one stunning performance.

Participants must be able to commit to four rehearsal days between Saturday, July 30 to Tuesday, August 2.

A dress rehearsal will be held on Wednesday, August 3, with the opening performance in front of a packed stadium the following day.

For further information call Natasha Guinessy, dance development officer, on 01236 812495.
