Dance InformationGlasgow is the largest city in Scotland, and third most populous settlement with city status in the United Kingdom.
Glasgow is situated on the River Clyde in Scotland's West Central Lowlands. Inhabitants of the city are referred to as "Glaswegians" or "Weegies" and it is the fourth most visited city in the UK.
Glasgow grew from a small rural settlement on the River Clyde to become the largest seaport in Britain. Expanding from the medieval bishopric and royal burgh, and the later establishment of the University of Glasgow in the fifteenth century, it became a major centre of the Scottish Enlightenment in the eighteenth century. From the eighteenth century onwards, the city also grew as one of Great Britain's main hubs of transatlantic trade with North America and the West Indies.
With the onset of the Industrial Revolution, the population and economy of Glasgow and the surrounding region expanded rapidly to become one of the world's pre-eminent centres of chemicals, textiles and engineering; most notably in the shipbuilding and marine engineering industry, which produced many innovative and famous vessels.
