Three talented Highland dancers have brought more awards back to Helensburgh after triumphing in America.

Isla Flint and Eilidh and Catriona Gammons, from Margaret Rose School of Dance, each had a successful weekend at the USIR Championship in Gettysburg.

The annual competition marked another successful weekend for 10-year-old Eilidh as she was crowned the North American champion after the three judges each placed her first in all four of her dances.

Eilidh’s sister Catriona came third in the under-16 national premiership category, while Isla Flint was also celebrating after winning her first-ever premiership title in the national dancing section.

And on top of that, the girls finished as runners up in a group choreography competition.

They also enjoyed a sightseeing visit to the White House, Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument in nearby Washington DC during their trip.

Margaret MacInnes, their dance instructor, told the Advertiser: “The results have been amazing and the girls work so hard for their success.

“Isla’s achievement in winning her first premiership title was fantastic.

“Eilidh is the Highland dance champion in Australia, Canada and America in the space of four months. It’s an amazing achievement for a 10-year-old – that was her 63rd title.

“Now the hard work continues for the Cowal Highland Gathering at the end of August – the biggest event for Highland dancers in Scotland.”
