The teams Rythmix and Vision, represented Scotland at the European Championships in Amsterdam last month.

The dance schools teams Rhythmix caters for under 18 novice girls and Team Vision for under 14 intermediate level.

Both danced their way to success by winning first place in their divisions which earned them the title of European Champions.

Founder and dance teacher, Vicki Williamson, who set the school up ten years ago said: I am absolutely ecstatic. We went to the championships never expecting to win one title, never mind two. It’s a huge competition with teams competing from as far away as China, South Africa and America, so to come home with the titles we did was truly the icing on the cake.
