In the beautiful setting of St Andrews, some of our 2019 Summer School dancers enjoyed an exciting afternoon filming Scottish country dancing with Judy Murray for a BBC programme. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet the renowned tennis coach and celebrity mother of Andy Murray, the former world No. 1 professional tennis player and Olympic champion.

On Thursday 1 August, Rachel Shankland and the dance team had a fun time dancing St Andrew’s Fair with Judy Murray and Angus Ashworth.  Highlights of the dancing featured on the BBC Celebrity Antiques Road Trip Series 9, on Monday 7 October at 19.00.   

If you missed the episode when it aired, you can still enjoy catching up on BBC iPlayer here, the dancing starts about 12 minutes in: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b01mnrhk/celebrity-antiques-road-trip.

We would like to thank Rachel Shankland, the dance team and musician Luke Brady for sharing the joy of Scottish country dancing with Judy and Angus and for providing spectators with a very entertaining afternoon.
