Dance fans have only until tomorrow to catch Falkirk movers and shakers on a BBC television programme.

Reasons to Dance is a ground-breaking performance being held in City nightclub next week.

It features the dancing memories of dozens of Bairns and was commissioned by the National Theatre of Scotland.

Choreographer and former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judge Arlene Phillips stopped in at rehearsals to learn more about the performance, which runs from Tuesday, March 26, until Saturday, March 31, for the BBC’s ‘Culture Show’.

The programme was broadcast last Friday and will be available on BBC iPlayer until tomorrow.

Also featured on the show is Hallglen author Alan Bisset talking about punk literature including his latest book ‘Skagboys’.
