Local Group is Dancing on Air

A local dance group is getting ready to represent Scotland at the Dance World Cup in Portugal with an added boost from the Cameron Toll Community Fund.

Morningside Dance Academy will join teams from 61 other countries at the massive event in Braga and will be participating in the solos, duets, trios, and group dance categories with their 27 members proudly wearing specially designed Team Scotland kit.

Claire Jefcoate, Centre Manager at Cameron Toll said: “It’s such an incredible opportunity for the young dancers from Morningside Dance Academy to represent Scotland at such a high level.  To know that Team Scotland will include people that are local to Cameron Toll makes us very proud supporters of them all.”

Diane Scott, a volunteer fundraiser for Morningside Dance Academy added: “This is the ultimate experience for our young dancers and we are delighted and proud that they have been selected for this incredible opportunity, and to represent Scotland.  The support from Cameron Toll’s Community Fund will go a long way to help make our team’s dreams come true.”

* UPDATE JULY 2023 *

The Morningside Dance Academy team put in numerous top performances including one that saw them win a Bronze Medal in their final dance – Large Group Song Dance.

They were also placed in 4th, 5th and 6th place for some of their other dances, and Team Scotland finished 3rd overall for the country points.

Diane Scott from Morningside Dance Academy told us “The girls all had such a wonderful time and it was an incredible experience for all of us. So many wonderful moments and memories, helped greatly along by your funding.”

We were delighted to sponsor the team’s trip through our Community Fund and are really proud of the success the whole team achieved.
