FIVE talented dancers from Janice Marshall Stage School have left for pastures new after securing places in the country’s top dance academies.

The five JMSS alumni will start their training at their new schools this month after years of preparation at the Irvine-based school.

Aspen Rae is heading to Ballet West in Oban, Aimee Robertson secured a place on the Contemporary course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and Archie Anderson, Kayleigh McLaren and Jennifer Mcdonald are all heading to the Dance school of Scotland.
