A Prize Presentation followed the show in which each studio member was presented with a medal for their success over the past 6 months and winners were chosen from each weekly class.

On the night the Top prize was the Edge Dance Studio Scholarship. The winner was Brooke Kay who now trains privately for free and gets the chance to represent the studio at major dancing events and competitions throughout Scotland.

Lead choreographer Rebecca Miller was exceptionally proud of everyones achievements and performances on the night. ‘The majority of these kids had no dance experience until they came to the studio.. and to be able to put on a show like this is 6 months is amazing!!

Willie Miller (Street, Breakdance Flips and Tricks teacher) I am extremely proud of not only all the kids that took part on the night but also of all the hard work and dedication that Rebecca puts in to each and every child and all the time and effort she spent putting the show together, it really was a fantastic night.

It all started 6 years ago with Rush.dance teaching Street and Breakdance and now it has grown so much over the last 6 months with the studio now offering lots of other dance styles to the Highlands.
