Erskine Military Ball showcases young dancers

Dancers at Erskine Military Ball, 2023

Dancers of the Elite Academy of Dance and Alba Ballet mesmerised their audience during the recent Erskine Veterans Military Ball.

The guests of charity, which supports over 1,000 veterans every year, watched a performance of the famous Dambuster tune as 10 dancers glided effortlessly through their routine.

The dance was specifically created by the Principal of both schools, Julie Kavanagh, for the Ball.

Julie’s group of performers came from Ayrshire and Inverclyde and were aged between 15 and 17.

The Elite Academy of Dance is a dedicated Royal Academy of Dance School of Classical Ballet. And Alba Ballet is the only touring youth ballet company in Scotland that performs the traditional classics such as The Nutcracker. Both companies are based in Inverclyde.

The dance school shared their thanks for being involved in the event:

The whole experience was amazing, and the girls didn’t want to leave they are still buzzing! They would have danced the whole night if they could.

Erskine Events and Sponsorship Manger Jennifer Campbell said:

We are delighted this amazing group of young dancers could join us, and our guests even more so. Their Dambuster performance was a very special moment in what was, once again, a fantastic evening and we can’t thank them enough.
