Seven girls from SkyeDance were the first students on the Isle of Skye to sit the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) Modern Theatre examination.

Megan MacIver, Kizzy MacLeod, Lexy-Anna MacLeod, Shannon MacLeod, Molly Jo Fox, Jessica Scott Moncrieff and Anna Taylor have been working towards the examination for the past year.

Meara O'Donnell-Webb, who recently gained her teacher status, told The Skye Times: "We had en examinar come up all the way from England.  It was a fun, exciting experience for all.

"They are the first group of students from the Isle of Skye to sit this exam on Skye.  This is a big achievement for a rural island and for SkyeDance to be able to offer these girls the opportunity to sit their dancing exams with such a highly recognised examination board.

"We have to wait about a month for the results, but it was such a positive experience for them all.

"SkyeDance will continue to offer ISTD modern theatre dance classes to young people across Skye as they are so beneficial to a young person's development and also great for those wanting to go off and pursue a career in dance."
