A ten year-old dancer from Peterhead came out tops at a Highland Dancing Championship recently.

Caitlyn Buchan won the ten years Pre-Championship section at the SDTA Central Scotland Championship held in Glasgow on Saturday March 21.

She won her section with two firsts, one second and a third across the four Highland dances. It was a very successful and emotional day for Caitlyn who also won her Pre-Championship national section.

Caitlyn has been dancing since she was three years old and is a pupil at the Slessor School of Dance based in Peterhead.

Her dance teacher, Jacqueline Slessor, said of her success: “I am very proud that Caitlyn has accomplished this great achievement. It is what every Highland dancer aspires to win. She has worked very hard in class to achieve this and I wish her every success for future championships.”
