Folk dancing as you've never seen it before has been taking place in the Borders this week. A dance group from Hawick have been hosting children from Belgium and Lithuania to take part in a Youth International Dance Festival.
It gives the children a chance to share traditional dancing techniques, and form lifelong friendships. Jenny Longden reports.
Children from Hawick are hosting an international dance event in the Borders. 60 youngsters from Scotland, Belgium and Lithuania are taking part.
The groups have been visiting each other's countries to stage traditional performances.
Hawick has welcomed 60 young folk dancers from Lithuania and Belgium. Aged between nine and 18, the visitors are staying with host families and have been performing around the Hawick area.
Teries in Tartan, who put together the program, aims to create international friendships and build on current friendships following a recent visit to Lithuania.
