A SOLD-OUT Lochgelly Centre was treated to a variety of moves as youngsters displayed their dancing talents recently.

Pupils from primary and secondary schools from across the Kingdom took to the stage on Friday March 3 for the Fife 6,7,8 Active Schools Annual Dance event and they wowed the audience by showcasing their fantastic dance talents.

The Fife 6,7,8 dance project has provided training for school staff and volunteers to increase dance opportunities within schools, while Active Schools work closely with local dance companies linking school and community provision.

It provides a dance festival for schools to showcase some of their extra-curricular dance sessions and this year's event played host to 16 schools.

They included secondaries Beath, Woodmill, St Columba's, St Andrews, Levenmouth, Bell Baxter, Auchmuty and Madras, and primaries St Joseph's, Lochgelly South, Canmore, Ladybank, Carleton, St Margaret's, Auchtertool and Dysart.

Leanne Reid, Active Schools coordinator at Beath High, said: "The show also provided performances from local dance schools Dynamic Dance and Zodiac. The newly trained Active Schools dance Leaders also performed together for the first year ever!

"A wide variety of dance styles were performed on the night including ballet, contemporary and street which are delivered by teachers, local dance companies and senior pupils within their schools. These lunchtime/after school clubs provide an opportunity for participants to be active through decision within their school setting."
