THE WIZARD OF OZ has been used to conjure up as much as £8000 for local charities in a bi-annual fundraising effort.

June Roy School of Dance performed a three-night run of performances featuring the Wizard of Oz and their creative interpretation of the seasons last week.

It is the latest effort from the popular dance school to raise funding for local causes – which is normally undertaken every two years but, because of renovation work, this is the first time they have undertaken the shows for three years.

June Roy, who organised the performances with her daughter Jayne, said: “This show was all about the performers and the kids – we had dancers ranging from two and a half years old to adult students.

“It was a great show and we are lucky to have the public supporting us – this was the first concert since 2012 because of the renovations, but we raised £8000 in 2012 and would like to hit the same target this time around.”

The shows featured around 200 dancers of all ages from throughout Moray.
