Grampian Festivals was formed in the early 1980’s to bring the various festivals run by Lawrence Dance Academy under one umbrella.
The dance festivals were originally run in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire and provided highland dancers the opportunity to compete against their peers and also to promote friendship and camaraderie amongst the dancing fraternity.
