Gypsy Jewels

 

The Gypsy Jewels are a troupe of young dancers from schools across Banffshire (25 boys and girls) . They perform a range of dancing styles including Arabic, Indian, Gypsy, and African Gumboot.

The Gypsy Jewels are excited to be dancing at this year's Boat Festival and are practicing their choreographies in order to give a polished performance. The costumes are colorful and the dancers enjoyment is infectious: they also love to invite others to join in with their last dance.

The troupe was formed after the students received tuition from dance teacher Tina Gordon through the Active Schools Programme. The result was a continuing sustainable after schools project. The enthusiastic youngsters found their common interest bought them together allowing them to support each other.

The Gypsy Jewels hope to encourage other young people to take up dancing.
