Glasgow Gets Dancing!
Those with ambitions to perfect the perfect pirouette should head east to Glasgow’s historic Templeton factory. Modelled on Venice’s Doge’s Palace, this impressive building has swapped its industrial interior for glorious New York loft style space and a range of classes that see everyone from ballerinas to Bboys traversing its doors. Fierce Heels – a dance class exclusively for participants in high heels works both core muscles, and *snaps* attitude. I like to think that every day at Dance HQ is a re-run of the ‘I’m Gonna Live Forever’ dance sequence from eighties super film Fame.
A slow mosey up the road and wannabe gunslingers can find themselves in hoedown heaven at Glasgow’s Grand Ole Opry in Govan. The city’s most rootingist tootingist country and western club offers lessons in line dancing where cowboy hats and Stetsons aren’t compulsory but are certainly welcomed – make like your very own Steps tribute band, altogether now 5,6,7,8.
