Wiltshire Council welcomes young dancers

Sport and physical activity plays a vital role in the lives of young people. It contributes to good health and wellbeing, community cohesion and helps children meet other youngsters and make friends

John Thomson, Wiltshire Council cabinet member for leisure

Wiltshire Council has taken steps to keep children entertained this summer with a series of dance camps across the county.

The three-day sessions for eight-14-year-olds, hosted by The Dance Lady, focus on individual skills and choreography. They are suitable for newcomers and more experienced dancers.

John Thomson, Wiltshire Council cabinet member for leisure, said: "The dance camps are just one part of our Get Active summer programme which provides a range of opportunities that are available at 61 locations across the county.

"Sport and physical activity plays a vital role in the lives of young people. It contributes to good health and wellbeing, community cohesion and helps children meet other youngsters and make friends."

To register a place for a Get Active Dance Camp contact Matt Pearson, sports development officer, on 01225 770213 or email. 

The camps cost £50.
