Volunteers Week (1st-7th June)

Celebrating Volunteers Week - Abbie

"Hi I'm Abbie. I'm 16 years old and I volunteer to help out Popdance Tots and Primary Ballet in Stranraer. I started volunteering because I enjoy my time at Popdance and wanted to pass my experience and help the younger ones to improve their dancing. I have been at Emma Louise Dance Club for 10+ years and have learned a lot from Emma and feel that I can encourage the younger ones to enjoy it as much as I have."

It has been a pleasure to see you grow in confidence Abbie. Thank you for your dedication to Emma Louise Dance Club.

Volunteers Week (1st-7th June)

Celebrating Volunteers Week - Kaiya

"Hi, I am Kaiya McDowall I’m 12 years old and I started Ballet when I was 3 years old. I am currently in Senior Ballet and I have been helping Emma teach the Primary Ballet class for the last 2 years. The Primary Ballet class is for children aged aged 3-5 years old. I enjoy my volunteering role as I like seeing the children make friends with each other, and I like seeing their dance ability and confidence improve. Helping Emma with the little ones has given me the opportunity to pass my love for ballet onto others."

Kaiya thank you for the fantastic contribution you make to Emma Louise Dance Club.
