Dunfermline dancers take Disney by storm

A group of young dancers from Dunfermline had an experience of a lifetime when they recently took part in the Dance the World Convention at Walt Disney World.

Dancers from Centre Stage Performing Arts travelled to Florida in June to represent Scotland at the convention for the very first time. The group, ranging in age from seven to 15, joined 13,000 other dancers from across the globe and performed their own dance with a Scottish twist, as well as learning choreography for a parade through Magic Kingdom Park.

The big trip followed 18 months of fundraising, to which Dundas Estates was proud to contribute, to cover travel and accommodation costs for the 41 dancers, teachers and family members making the journey from Fife to the US.

Louise Ferrier, principal of Centre Stage Performing Arts, said: “We were the first group from Scotland to perform at the convention and the girls did the country proud! There were 100,000 people in Magic Kingdom while we performed in the parade and it was an incredible experience for the dancers. They’ve grown as dancers and as people.

"We had an excellent time in Florida and we thank Dundas Estates so much for its kind donation towards our trip of a lifetime.”

Heather Birrell, sales and marketing manager for Dundas Estates, said: “We were very proud to support Centre Stage Performing Arts to achieve this amazing opportunity and we’re so pleased it was a success.

"We are always looking for ways to invest in the local areas around our developments and it is one of our core values as not only housebuilders, but community builders.”
