Glasgow’s only professional dance festival, the Cottier Dance Project is the new, curated dance strand of the West End Festival. In partnership with the Cottier Chamber Project, the Cottier Dance Project aims to champion Scottish-based choreographers and dancers, to provide a platform for new work and to forge new collaborations across the arts to create and develop original performance pieces.
Film screenings, live performances and dance classes are all part of the new project.
