Balfron High

THIS term has been a really hectic time for the dancers at the school, they have been very busy choreographing and then perfecting dance routines to compete in the Forth Valley Dance Competition.

The school put forward six groups of female and male dancers across all year groups and their hard work showed over the two nights of competition.

In the junior competition Dynamic and Million Dollar Toes performed exceedingly well, with Million Dollar Toes coming third in the small group category.

The following evening Eruption, Swingkids, Momentus and Groovy Chicks all competed in the senior competition.

Eruption and Swingkids each took home third place trophies for the small and big group categories repectfully. Balfron High School is very proud of all pupils who took part in the Forth Valley Dance Competition.
