The Aberdeen Academy of Dance, (UK)

Aberdeen International Youth Festival (AIYF)

The Aberdeen Academy of Dance is a local dance school run by Sarah MacNay. The girls dancing in the Youth Festival this year are aged 10 to 15. They perform together regularly and spend a lot of time in choreography class, developing their own repertoire, some of which can be seen on stage this year. The girls take classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and musical theatre and are all experienced in local theatre, having performed in a number of HMT and Tivoli pantomimes. A number of these girls are just back from performing on a cruise ship to audiences of over 1000 people. They all love to perform and have enjoyed preparing this new work for the Dance Gala.
