Northern Lights is a Baha’I inspired
performing dance group for young people who want to make a difference
in their part of the world. It has eleven members, all from the
Highlands of Scotland, who travel long distances in order to meet
and train together once a month. The dances are theatre based
and aim to offer solutions to social problems such as racism,
poverty, violence and drug and alcohol abuse. Northern Lights
believe that the arts are an extremely effective medium for increasing
understanding of these issues amongst other young people.
