Pupils of the Gordon School of Dancing are continuing their globe-trotting ways by jetting off this week to Thailand.

The group of six girls will spend 10 days in the country following a packed programme which includes an appearance on a television show and a number of Scottish-themed shows at venues in Bangkok and in Pattaya on the eastern seaboard.

One highlight will be a show at the top of a 97-storey building made almost entirely of glass.

The itinerary also includes visits to local schools and orphanages with their tour culminating in a St Andrew’s ball in Bangkok, organised by the city’s Caledonia Society, on their final night.

The girls are attending at the invitation of Aberdeen band leader Graham Geddes, who has played at the event for more than 10 years and decided to provide an extra dimension of Scottish entertainment at this year’s ball.
