Skye Chatburn, 13, from the Lynella School of Dance in Kelso, with teacher Susan Grainger after competing in the British Association of Teachers of Dancing senior scholarships in Glasgow.
Skye was nominated, by her examiner, to attend the scholarships following her examination success in May when she attained honours in her Grade 4 Highland exam.
The scholarships requirement was a one-hour dance class, written paper and solo choreography.
After a tough day of dance, Skye was awarded “pupil with most potential” and runner-up to the overall senior scholarship.
This was the teenager’s first year in the senior category, which includes candidates up to 18 from across the UK.
