Skye Dance officer Ailsa Mcinnes

Meet our Dance officer - Ailsa McInnes

Ailsa began her dancing career at The Scottish School of Contemporary Dance in Dundee where she gained her HND in Contemporary Dance Performance. Ailsa’s training consisted of mostly ballet and contemporary with some other styles mixed in such as Jazz, Capoeira and Hip Hop.

 

Ailsa participated in many different workshops led by well-known dancers, companies and choreographers such as Scottish Dance Theatre, Scottish Ballet, Fleur Darkin, Thomas Small, Errol White, Jack Webb and many more. Whilst still training Ailsa worked for three months in Pennsylvania where she taught dance six days a week, choreographing dance pieces for different shows in and around New York. She was lucky enough to get to work alongside dancers from New York Ballet whilst working here which was an amazing experience!

 

After finishing her training Ailsa went on to work full time for a dance charity in Edinburgh where she was a part of the management team and a senior dance teacher. This was a fast paced and exciting opportunity where she was able to build on her teaching experience. After working in this job for almost a year Ailsa felt it was time for a change and applied here with us at SkyeDance. She initially was employed as Graduate Dance Support Officer but In April 2019 was promoted to Dance Officer.
