A dance explosion is taking place in Methil and the whole community has the opportunity to be part of it.

Expressions School of Dance is a not-for-profit dance studio, at the old Innerleven East Church, which aims to get all of the community fit and active through learning different types of dance.

The school was started by local competitive dancer Amanda Mitchell, (34) but was boosted when her dad Bill Mitchell bought the old church building in July and leased it to her as rehearsal and performance space.

As our picture shows the school, which is now run by a committee including former Leven Community Cinema chairman Frank Walker, has renovated the hall turning it into a top class studio.

Amanda said the school operates a “fun, friendly, exciting studio” where anyone is welcome. She added: “Kids will become more confident, create new friends, become much fitter and take pride in who they are.

“We offer freestyle dance, RAD ballet, hip-hop, street and various adult fitness classes.”

Anyone is able to go along to the studio and take part. A timetable of classes for all age ranges can be found at www.facebook.com/pages/Expressions-School-of-Dance.

If dancing isn’t your thing but you want to help out, the hall, which is licensed, can be booked for private functions with the profits being put back into the school.
