Members of the Fife Dance Academy dive into Forth during a charity fundraiser

Pupils and teachers alongside dance mums and dads, will take to Kirkcaldy beach this Saturday 19th March to take part in a remarkable feat of selflessness to raise funds for vulnerable families.

Led by their teacher, Jade Swan (21), and their assistant, Paige Swan (17), the students of Swan Dance Academy will bathe in glacial water dressed in 80s-themed costumes.

Jade, owner of Swan Dance Academy, said: “We decided to do a crazy dook to raise money for Fife Gingerbread as they support single parents as well as vulnerable families, and as a few of our dancers live in deprived areas, we wanted to help a charity that is making a difference in Fife.

“If everyone shows up the same day, there should be around 60 attendees. I told our students it will be cold, but I don’t think any of them realize how cold it will be!

“I’m going to lead from the front and all my students have already told me they can’t wait to push me!”

Jade, who is also studying sport and exercise science at the University of Abertay, said she was no stranger to loony dooks after taking part in one with university friends in the Tay.

She says. “It was November and it was absolutely Baltic! Hopefully this one won’t be as bad.

“Everyone meets at the truck park at the end of the Esplanade at 11.30am this Saturday and we aim to be in the water no later than 12.00pm.

“Anyone who wishes to come and watch is more than welcome as there will be volunteers with buckets if people wish to donate a pound or two.”
