10 years for Walker School of Dance

The Walker School of Highland Dance celebrates 10 years of fun filled lessons this month ,having been founded by sisters Kathryn and Celeste Walker in the summer of 2004.

Originally teaching in Aberdeen, the school moved its lessons to Newtonhill in 2005 and further expanded into Stonehaven in 2013.

The popular Stonehaven pre-school lessons have proven to be a great starting block for new dancers, with a number of pupils moving quickly into the competition circuit.

Celeste, a Member of the British Association of Teachers of Dance in Highland and Scottish National disciplines, said: “It’s fantastic to see such young children enjoying the exercise and taking an interest in a little piece of Scottish tradition. It’s rewarding to see everyone do well in exams and displays, and a bonus to see students beginning to be successful in competition if that’s the route they wish to explore.”

Spaces are currently available for the morning pre-school aged sessions for dancers from age 3. More advanced lessons are also available in the evenings on Mondays and Fridays for older children. Celeste can be contacted via email walkerdanceschool@hotmail.com
