A local youth dance group has been selected to perform at a national youth dance showcase in Stirling next month.

SkyeDance Youth Company is one of 13 youth dance groups from across the country selected to perform alongside the National Youth Dance Company of Scotland at a spectacular celebration of young dance talent.

YDance Destinations is a vibrant annual showcase of the best youth dance companies from across Scotland. The event, this year to be held at Macrobert Arts Centre, Stirling on Saturday 2 March, brings together national youth dance talent in an exciting evening of diverse performances.

Social media star, Calum Maclean, was crowned Best Director at the FilmG Awards on 8 February.

Calum, best known for his appearances on the BBC’s The Social platform and BBC ALBA’s wild swimming series, Dhan Uisge, scooped the top prize for his experimental film Fo Bhuaidh.

Calum says, “I'm delighted to be awarded the FilmG Best Industry Director prize. The standard in this year's competition was excellent with some very strong films.

Staffin Primary School earned two awards at this year's FilmG ceremony.

The Primary School won the Best Youth Group film and the People’s Choice Prize for their comedic look at the different types of Mòd parent, from the scatty to the ultra-competitive, in their film, Mòd Màiri!

The FilmG team stated: "They really gathered the support of their community with lots of social media activity to win the highest number of public votes."
