With an extra £94,000 in the contemporary dance collers ( the result 01 Basic Space's grant being withdrawn last November) and in a climate of initiative and energy, the timing oi Penny Rae’s appointment as Dance Otticer at the Scottish Arts Council could not have been better. Penny has already had an illustrious career in the dance world, having administered and lectured around the country, most recently organising the National Festival at Youth Dance held last year at Hexham. Enthusiastic about what‘s happening in Scotland, she’s looking Iorward to her latest challenge.

Forthe tirst time, the SAC are

contemporary dance with a view to luture support. Seminars, recently held in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, called on the advice and comments 01 specialists lrom all over the country.

A major report, due to be published this yearwill use the results at these seminars along with the comments 01 individuals and groups, to lorm the Ioundations ol luture strategy. There‘s still time to write to the SAC with ideas and problems torthe report. Closing date is 31 March.

Meanwhile business is blossoming underthe hand at Penny Rae— a long-awaited and now much in demand, national organiser. (Alice Bain)
