The world renowned National Danish Performance Team delighted and thrilled a packed house at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility on Saturday 19th March 2011, with the Danish Team coming to Scotland from China on the latest leg of their 8th World Tour.

The team had also spent a few days working with schools in both North and South Lanarkshire, inspiring a new generation of young gymnasts to follow in their footsteps.

Spectators were also treated to a demonstration from Ravenscraig’s Dynamic Gymnastics Academy from gymnasts as young as 5. The Gymnastics Club has grown from 50 to over 530 members since moving to Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility.

Blane Dodds, Chief Executive of North Lanarkshire Leisure said “The National Danish Performance Team put on a totally awe inspiring performance with feats of explosive, dynamic gymnastics mixed with beautifully aesthetic pieces of dance and rhythmic gymnastics. It was a complete pleasure to watch such a fantastic and captivating performance. I would like to thank the Team Manager Anders Liengaard together with the coaches and artistic directors and not least the fantastic performance team for bringing this show to Scotland and to Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in North Lanarkshire”.

Blane added “It is particularly pleasing that the National Danish Performance Team should choose to visit us this year as North Lanarkshire has achieved the prestigious status of “European City of Sport 2011” and the international spotlight continues to shine on Lanarkshire with the International Children’s Games being hosted by both North and South Lanarkshire in August this year. Lanarkshire are very proud of the fact that the eyes of the world shall be upon us we welcome guests from around the world in this very exciting year for sport”.

Anders Liengard, NDPT Team Manager said “I would like to thank North Lanarkshire Leisure for arranging our performance, the team were delighted with the warm welcome and friendly hospitality we received at Ravenscraig and in Lanarkshire. We received a standing ovation from a packed audience at the end of our performance and we will certainly plan to return to Scotland again on our next World Tour in two years time.”
