An emotional dance routine by Glasgow dancers has gone viral after their performance highlighted cyberbullying.

The squad of dancers who helped put the show together wanted to raise awareness about cyberbullying after five out of the 20 girls in the group had been affected by it. 

And after posting the video online, it has been seen nearly 40,000 times even gaining the seal of approval from ex-Celtic star, Ruesha Littlejohn who shared it on her Instagram story.

Dance teacher Kelly Butler has been teaching classes for close to 25 years and is based in Maryhill. She said she is "mega proud" of everyone who helped make it come together after wanting to tell a strong story. 

Speaking exclusively to the Glasgow Times she said: "The show was just amazing.

"We planned to tell a powerful story, like every year, with shows in the past being about mental health and Covid.

"Out of all the shows that I have done, I didn't think the emotional and powerful impact our story on covid could be passed but this is by far right up there.

"Everyone can't believe the number of times it has been watched since it was posted online, we keep watching the number grow more and more.

"At the end when the curtain came down, we all just cuddled and I am so proud of everyone for making it happen and going out to perform the story in front of a huge crowd".

The idea for the show came to Kelly after watching an episode of Britain's Got Talent that was speaking about the issue. 

However, it hit closer to home for the dance teacher who takes the classes with her sister, Catherine Butler, when girls were coming to them about experiencing the problem first-hand. 

That was when the two dance teachers wanted to use this year's show to highlight the issue to people and create a powerful message. 

Kelly said: "The feedback from everyone has been amazing.

"But we are just so glad that we could get this message across because it means a lot to us.

"The girl in the show who is playing the lead experienced cyberbullying and to be brave enough, along with everyone else, to tell that story so openly and well makes me feel like a proud mum.

"Her mum texted me after the show to say that she couldn't believe what she just watched and how much she had come out of her shell.

"Words can hurt people and affect people more than they think, so we hope that message got across."
