Home sweet home - Dunfermline dancer back from NYC

Published: 21 Sep 2013 15:000 comments

DUNFERMLINE dancer Louise Ferrier made the trip of a lifetime when she jetted off to study at the prestigious Broadway Dance School in New York City.

Now the 25-year-old has returned to West Fife, and brought her experience with her to pass on to the next generation of movers and shakers.

Louise, who runs Centre Stage Dance Academy, told the Press, “New York was just amazing, it was so surreal to be there and be taught by all these choreographers that you watch on TV.

“I was working with everyone from Beyonce’s dancers to Kurt Froman who was Natalie Portman’s ballet coach on Black Swan.

“All the big names from Broadway to MTV and everything in between.

“At one event we were dancing with The Wanted at a flash mob in Central Park. They were doing a premiere of their new song so when we danced with them it was aired on Good Morning America.

“New York is just like everything you see in the movies. Everything lives up to every expectation, you never get bored.

“I used to eat my lunch five minutes from the studio in Times Square.

“Now that I’m back I’ve expanded the dance school to Kelty and Rosyth as well as Crossgates.

“I want to pass on my knowledge of all the different things that I’ve taken from there. Kids don’t realise where they could go if they stick in at their dancing now.

I’ve been around the world and danced but the idea was always to settle here.

“I know I’m giving the best of my training to the kids.

“We’ve got loads coming up, workshops in October and a charity showcase in December so the school is very busy this year.”
