The world may have been turned on its head, but dancers from Yvonne Milne Dance School have found some solace in their continued dance practice.

Classes may have been moved online, but the dancers have continued to work hard during lockdown.

Family, friends and the wider community should have been able to enjoy the fruits of their labour in an end of year concert in Turriff Academy last month, but unfortunately it was cancelled.

As an alternative the dancers have put on a virtual concert to show off their achievements and share their hard work, and they have decided to use it to raise money for a local care home.

A cause close to the heart of some of the participating dancers, it was decided that any donations which were received for the virtual concert would go towards Badenscoth Care Home.

The concert is free to watch, but anybody who enjoys the concert is encouraged to make a small donation if they are able

Dance teacher Yvonne Milne said: "The dancers and their families have worked hard at home on this production and as their teacher I am very proud of them all.

"They have come with their own work and ideas and enjoyed every minute of it - and this is what dancing is all about.

"We hope you enjoy the concert and look out for some familiar faces not normally seen at a YMDS dance class."

The concert can be found on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/5xl0Q1xp_ww.
