Linlithgow Academy dance team winners 2014

Linlithgow Academy’s senior dance team twirled their way to victory at the West Lothian Schools Dance Competition in Livingston last Wednesday.

Aimee Harris, Jenni Adams, Toni Hunter, Keira MacInnes, Rebecca Ferguson, Laura Barber, Ciara Farrelly, Sophie Irving and Katie Reid were part of the team who took gold in the senior category.

The school fielded a junior team but, despite receiving high praise, it did not take any of the winning titles.

Lyn O’Rourke, teacher of physical education at the Academy, said: “The girls have been working extremely hard over the last few weeks at lunch and after school to perfect their choreography.

“The juniors performed a high energy dance which captured their personalities while the seniors performed a flawless dance.

“Both teams performed well and did themselves proud.”
