Mckechnie School of Dance got in contact with Adam Garcia as part of his UK tour and invited him along to host a workshop specialising in tap dancing.

Nadine said: “It’s often hard to find workshops that cater only for tap so we jumped at the chance to do this.”

Each session, which lasted around two hours, saw youngsters, members of both the dance school and the local community, aged ten and up put on their dancing shoes.

Following the exciting event, McKechnie School of Dance are also set to welcome Kimberly Wyatt, former Pussycat Doll and star of hit TV show Got to Dance, to their studios on Tuesday, April 10.
