THE magic of Disney was sprinkled across the Forth Road Bridge on Sunday when a group of West Fife kids kicked and cartwheeled their way across.

And, for the youngsters from Centre Stage Dance Academy, it is just the latest performance on their road to performing at the Magic Kingdom in both Paris and Florida next year.

The sponsored event, which the academy's principal tutor, Louise Ferrier, hopes will generate up to £1,500, is the latest fundraiser to help 14 dancers perform on stage at Disneyland Paris in May, and fund a further 10 to go to the United States to represent Scotland in the 'Dance the World' convention.

That will see the youngsters, aged between seven and 15, perform in the park's parade and in their own show in the Epcot theatre, in June, little over a year since Centre Stage dancers were chosen to perform in Paris as part of the French park's 25th anniversary celebrations.

Louise said: "The excitement is incredible. We've been fundraising since before the summer and the kids have all been saying that they're going to be in the parade, going to perform in their own show, and have dinner with Mickey and Minnie!

"The magic of Disney takes over and the adults are as thrilled as the kids; there's so many families and friends coming over to support, so Scotland will get a big cheer, that's for sure!

Centre Stage, who have 26 youngsters travelling to take part in Alton Towers' 'Scarefest' Hallowe’en show next month, run tuition from the age of 18 months upwards in acro dance, team performance, street dance and adult fitness. They have classes in Crossgates, Dunfermline, Rosyth and Kelty.
