I could have Danced all night

What a treat it was to see Mary Corpe’s dancers in action over the festival. Mary has singlehandedly trained a Dance Group, The Next Step Dance Company, and also a ballet group, The First Step Company. 


The children are all locals, and Mary has done a stunning job with them. This was very evident when they performed on the Saturday of the festival. They delighted the audience as they performed outside the Church Hall, and visitors to McGregor were amazed to see the quality of Dance on offer. 




Both groups then delighted the large crowd attending the Poetry Competition Prizegiving, with their own versions of I am an African Child.

Thank you Mary- you are a very special lady!
