PRIME is proud to be Scotland's first semi-professional dance company for the over 60s. This dynamic group was chosen by audition in February 2015 by Morag Deyes, Artistic Director of Dance Base and PRIME.

PRIME challenges assumptions as to who can be a dancer and explores riches in the differences and life experiences of a person, a dancer.
