RSCDS dancers enjoy dancing with Judy Murray for the BBC
October 8, 2019
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.
