A street dance crew from Crewe are heading to a European Championships and a World Championships after qualifying at a recent competition in Chester.
George Unwin, Jacob Edwards, Ellie White, Eden Vickers and Joseph Tasker, aged from 7 to 10, form the ‘XCITE’ street dance crew. They took part in the UDO North Wales Street Dance Championships 2014 at the Northgate Arena in Chester on Sunday 4th May: http://www.udostreetdance.com/events/udonorthwalesstreetdancecompetition2014 .
‘XCITE’ crew competed in the 10 and under age category and beat off fourteen other crew's to finish in second place. They were judged on factors including timing, technique and difficulty of routine.
Their second place qualifies them for the World Championships in Glasgow in August 2014 and the European Championships in Germany in 2015.
‘XCITE’ crew are all members of Miss Caroline’s School of Dance and train twice a week at St Mark's in Crewe with their instructor Jack Robinson.
Caroline Foxley (Founder and Principal of Miss Caroline’s School of Dance) said, "We are extremely proud of XCITE. This was only their second competition so to achieve second place and qualify for the Worlds and the Europeans is a massive achievement. The hard work and dedication that the students, parents and Jack their teacher puts in has well and truly paid off. They are a shining example of our Schools talent and we look forward to their future success."
