A variety of Styles and Age Groups

SkyeDance are delighted to offer regular classes in Ballet, Hip Hop and Contemporary as well as invited guest tutors providing workshops in Commercial, Street, Bollywood and Salsa. Our Boys Only Group runs weekly and is a busy and energetic class which aims to reduce the stigma around males taking part in Dance and encourage them to express themselves through their bodies movements. Our classes are available to a variety of age groups and abilities. We pride ourselves in our work within the community and often work with local care homes to provide classes for residents.

Professional Dance Classes and Tuition on the Isle of Skye

SkyeDance was first established in 2003 to meet the need for more dance classes and the promotion of Dance across Skye and Lochalsh. The first SkyeDance showcase was performed in June 2004 and was a sell out hit, confirming the appetite and passion for dance on the island.

Promoting Health

Helping Communities

We also lead projects in inter-generational work where primary children visit nursing/care homes and dance with the residents. The benefits of this physically and mentally, especially for people living with dementia is extraordinary.

Alongside our inter-generational project we also run a weekly class aimed at young people living with different disabilities and deliver workshops across the island to disability groups. In December 2019 we held our first ‘Inclusive Dance Festival’ where young people and adults from across Skye and Lochalsh came together for an afternoon of dancing and socialising.
