The Sandra Wright School of Dancing opened in January 1977 in the Masonic Hall at Glamis, Angus and offers tuition in Ballet Tap & Highland dancing for children from primary one catchment age into adulthood. Classes are held on Fridays after school and on Saturdays during school terms.
All pupils are taught by Miss Sandra and commence in 1st year with Ballet as it is the foundation of all other dance styles and has very particular rules about how a dancer must stand and move. This classical dance style is known throughout the world for its beauty and strength. This dance form helps the dancer achieve excellent posture, balance, strength, and grace, required in all forms of dance, and enhances personal development whilst learning the fundamental techniques used by a dancer. Proper technique ensures both a safe and an effective class.
In 2nd Year Tap is introduced and Highland in 3rd year, which gives pupils the three dance styles in one class. During the first three years classes are 45 minutes long and then gradually increase in length.
In all classes pupils are encouraged to dance, sing and perform for enjoyment, to the very best of their ability. Participation in UKA Medal Tests, Charity Shows, local Fete Days and for the older pupils professional shows are all encouraged but not compulsory.
U.K.A. Medal Tests are held usually in December and June.

I was a 10 year old living in New Zealand when I started to have regular highland dancing lessons.
Tuition in ballet was added the following year. By the age of 16 I had gained my membership of the Royal Academy of Dancing (now Royal Academy of Dance). I then returned to Scotland and achieved my dream of winning the Adult World Highland Dancing Championship. At this time I was also dancing in Theatre shows, gained my Membership and then Fellowship of the United Kingdom Alliance. I met my entertainer husband, Joss Esplin, while dancing at the Tivoli Theatre in Aberdeen. A brief spell back in New Zealand was followed with more successful examinations with the British Ballet Organization and the New Zealand Academy of Piping and National Dancing Inc. Joss and I returned to Scotland to continue our career with television, theatre, tours to Canada and America,
hotel entertainment work, and have 2 sons.
