Dancing friends of the Commonwealth

(Photograph) - Primary pupils from seven schools in the Blairgowrie area benefited from a week of workshops last week led by Scottish Ballet as part of the Commonwealth Dance Festival, culminating in a performance of their work on Friday.

They were taking part in the Spirit of Friendship Festival education programme designed by the Commonwealth Institute to promote citizenship education. The schools are also part of Sportscotland's active primary school programme, which allowed them to explore the theme of "Commonwealth dance".
