A new dance school was officially opened in Dalry recently.

Local MP Patricia Gibson, MSP Kenneth Gibson, and Councillor Joy Brahim attended the opening of Chloe McColm School of Dance.

Jacqui Devlin, whose daughter has started at the new dance school, told the Herald: “For a young girl, Chloe’s done really well. Other dance schools they’re all about training and being competitive. What Chloe does is proper dance instruction but with a huge amount of fun.

“You don’t have to be Darcey Bussell, just do the best you can. It’s all about having fun and making friends.”
