Fraserburgh’s Burnett School of Dance celebrated 60 years of dance in the Broch with a grand concert on Thursday, December 3.

Alixa Gunn was presented with a certificate from the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing to mark her teaching of dancers for over half a century in the Broch.

The concert took place at the Fraserburgh Academy Hall, where dancers of all ages entertained the packed room with a wide selection of dance styles.

A highlight of the show was when four generations of the same family took to the stage to perform.

Alixa Gunn, Glynis Lumsden, Sarah Duthie and her daughter Charlotte danced together to great applause.

Sarah Duthie said that her grandmother Alixa has trained ‘hundreds, if not thousands’ of dancers.
