“Join the Dance” is a new event in support of the BBC’s Children in Need 2010 and of A Right Blether, a consultation by Tam Baillie, Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People.
Launched by Common Thread, a pioneering Scottish residential child care company, the event will be a dance procession at the Scottish Parliament on November 18.
“Blether” is a Scottish word for a chat. A Right Blether aims to ensure that the views of children and young people are heard. It will culminate in a national vote for thousands of people under 18, the results of which will inform the Commissioner’s work plan for the next four years. “Join the Dance” will provide an opportunity for people of all ages to show their support for the initiative. The dance has been specially created by choreographer Chris Stuart-Wilson. If you can’t attend the dance on November 18, you can upload a video to www.jointhedanceuk.com, which also has a demonstration of the dance.
