PULLING out the moves for its house-buying customers is all in a day’s work for developer Drumrossie Homes. 

And so it seemed a natural progression to become sponsors of a major dance festival where moves will be ‘busted out’ all over Aberdeen.

Drumrossie Homes has been revealed as the marketing sponsors of DanceLive 2023, presented by Citymoves Dance Agency. 

The house builder is currently in the first phase of the 44-home Rothney West development at Insch. 

The four-day dance festival, which runs from October 19 to 22, will take place at venues across Aberdeen, including Lemon Tree, Music Hall, Aberdeen Art Gallery, The Anatomy Rooms and the Bon Accord Centre. 

The programme consists of a series of ticketed and free indoor and outdoor performances across Aberdeen. Morning workshops and classes will also be held in Citymoves’ Schoolhill Studio, led by visiting artists and companies. 

There will be screenings of dance films and documentaries in Cowdray Hall as part of the 18th annual celebration of dance. 

Drumrossie Homes’ sponsorship will provide support to market the festival to a wider audience, through printed brochures, banners and posters. 

Lynn Shaw, DanceLive manager, hailed the “invaluable support” of Drumrossie. 

She said: “The sponsorship of our events cannot be underestimated. It takes so much work to put together a festival like this and we couldn’t do it without support from the likes of Drumrossie Homes. It allows us to fully promote dance to a wider audience and truly showcase the work that we do.” 

Allan Brown, managing director at Drumrossie Homes, said: “We are delighted to sponsor the marketing efforts of DanceLive 2023. This is a great event that we are happy to help spread the word about. Drumrossie Homes believes in supporting our local communities and having an impact in any way we can.” 

Allan will also be taking part in one of the workshops with German dancer and choreographer, Elisabeth Schilling. Elisabeth has been working with Citymoves Dance Agency’s Fusion Youth Dance Company on a curtain raiser performance at the Music Hall as part of the festival. 

Drumrossie recently welcomed pupils from Insch School who, under supervision from the team, got the opportunity to walk around the site and see the first phase of nine houses in the development which are currently under construction. The address of the new homes is Bruce Circle in Insch – a name which was voted for by the same pupils. 

Earlier that day, Allan had visited the classroom to talk to the class of 25 about the different types of land, the process of building homes as well as the importance of staying safe on and around the construction site. It was a walk down memory lane for Allan, who returned to the school where he first started as a pupil back in 1984. For the full DanceLive 2023 programme, to buy tickets or reserve places at free events, go to https://www.citymoves.org.uk/dancelive23Find more information on Drumrossie Homes at https://drumrossie.com
