Local Highland Dancers are Supporting NHS staff and volunteers caring for Covid-19 Patients

A team of young dancers from a Highland Dance School based in Annan and Dumfries jumped at the chance to put their training to good use and decided to support the fundraising effort in aid of Supporting NHS staff and volunteers caring for Covid-19 patientsby choreographing a virtual dance.

 

Louise Smith has been teaching highland dancing at various levels from beginners to World Championship level. Her students are from Thornhill, Dumfries, Annan, Lockerbie and all attend local schools.

Louise told DGWGO “The team were due to perform this summer at the Dumfries tattoo along with many other events and competitions that have now been cancelled due to COVID-19.
The Team of both competitive and non-competitive students jumped at the chance to put their training to good use and decided to support the fundraising effort by choreographing a virtual dance, taken from one of our tattoo performances.  Many of the students have parents and family members who are NHS Workers and key workers also.
Editing the 60 no. Video clips to make a finished choreographed dance took some 30 + hours but worth every minute to see the girls do what they do best, team work!”

 

The dancers have a  Just Giving page and so far have raised £754 of their £1300 target, If you would like to donate please click HERE
