Student turns up the heat in Greenland
The temperature is rising in Greenland – and for once global warning isn’t the main culprit.

Tanyella Allison is hotting things up for natives in Greenland where she is teaching youngsters Salsa.
Rather it’s the hip-swivelling action of a Black Isle student whose dance moves are turning up the heat a notch for the country’s indigenous people.
    Nineteen-year-old Tanyella Allison will have more of a tale to tell than most students when she returns to university after the festive break, for not many can boast of having taught salsa to the Inuit people.
    The former Fortrose Academy student has spent a month in the icy territory working with youngsters aged between eight and 12, taking them through the moves and adding a bit of Latin spice to their lives.
    As the daughter of Cromarty dance teacher Jermaine McCracken, she is no stranger to taking the lead in classes, whether at home in Ross-shire, where she works alongside her mum, or at Cambridge University where she has already held her first class for 40 students.
    Her time in Greenland came through friendship struck with an Inuit she met while undertaking a scholarship through United World College in Canada.
    She is due to arrive back to the Britain next week – but there will be little time to rest as she hotfoots it straight back to Cambridge and her studies in Social and Political Sciences.
    Meanwhile, mum Jermaine is doing her bit to keep Latin alive in Ross-shire with new Friday classes being held in Cromarty’s Victoria Hall.
    The 47-year-old is hoping for those glued to Saturday night TV’s Strictly Come Dancing, mesmerized by rumba, tangos and sexy salsa moves, to take that enthusiasm on to the dance floor.
    Tanyella Allison is hotting things up for natives in Greenland where she is teaching youngsters Salsa.
    One message is clear however. “We need men,” Mrs McCracken stated.
    “Women always show an interest in these classes but we need to see more men turning up.
    “Hopefully people in the community will be inspired by Strictly Come Dancing and come along to learn what they too can get out of it.”
    In addition to weekly classes, Salsa North will be holding regular dances in Inverness each month at the Royal Highland Hotel, collaborating with Spanish Salsa teacher Javier Rodrigues.
