A Clydebank dance academy wowed audiences last week as it held its Christmas pantomime, all supporting the academy in raising future funds.

The Dance Off Academy put on three performances of "The Beauty Within" at Clydebank Town Hall, with academy pupils aged between six and 21 getting involved in the show.

There was also an extra matinee performance, with children from local nursery schools and care homes - including St Margaret of Scotland Hospice - being entertained by the show.

The performers of all ages are trained on a weekly basis in drama, dance and singing and are all encouraged to audition for roles in the panto.

Lesley Farmer, from Dance Off Academy, told the Post: “I am totally overwhelmed by the feed back from this years panto which has been the busiest yet.

"Everyone was commenting that it as also by far been the best one yet.”

“This is amazing to hear and so encouraging to know our pantos can only keep getting bigger and better.

“The cast are all just fantastic and total professionals on the stage, our audiences loved them and we had so much audience participation making it so much fun. 

"It was delightful to see a standing ovation from our Thursday night audience for a well deserving cast.”
