Mariah Whitlock and Natasha Norton took part in the Trail Highland Games last weekend.

They were accompanied by their mothers, grandparents and their teacher, Liela Cooper.

Since the girls are both older than 16, they received cash awards instead of medals – Natasha and Mariah were pretty thrilled to each have a nice cheque to take home with them. Good job, girls!

All Liela’s and Hali Duncan’s dancers are hard at work in preparation for their annual Robbie Burns Night, to be held this year on Burns’ actual birthday of January 25 at the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort in Cranbrook.
