Performance skills courses

A PACKED programme of events from Scottish Borders Council’s art development team has begun, running until August 13.

Youngsters from age five can book their place on a variety of courses in art, circus skills, music, dance, drama, outdoor games, song and stories.

Activities take place in venues across the Borders and most activities cost £2.

SBC’s executive member for culture, sport and community learning, councillor Graham Garvie, said: “This is a fantastic programme with lots of opportunities to work with professionals and develop skills in art, drama, dance, song or music.”

As part of the programme, there is a week-long intensive leadership award course in dance or drama at Earlston High School.
