Ellie Leckie dancing in Edinburgh

Ellie Leckie 2

Dalry local, Ellie Leckie is pursing a career in performing arts and is currently undertaking her BA Honours Top-Up Degree in Commercial Dance and Performance at MGA Academy of Performing Arts in Edinburgh.

After four years of study at Glasgow’s Anniesland College, Ellie has decided to continue her studies to improve her dancing abilities and obtain a teaching qualification.

However, the MGA Academy in Edinburgh is private and hence courses or are not funded.  That’s where Community Windpower stepped in delivering £3,083 to pay for Ellie’s course fees for one term, through the Dalry Parish Boundary Trust (DPBT).

The Academy is a Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) Approved Centre and is Scotland’s only fully accredited college with the UK’s Council for Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre – and is approved by the Imperial Society for the Teachers of Dance.

Robert Barr, Chair of the DPBT, said “As Ellie’s course is not funded, we were only too happy to assist her by meeting her fees for her first term.

“We see this as investing into our young people, especially as Ellie’s course opens doors to teach others in the future.

“We wish Ellie all the best with her time at MGA Academy and lots of luck with her performing arts career”.
