A Welwyn Garden City dance school has put its best foot forward in a street dance competition.
Dancers from KT’s Academy of Performing Arts travelled to the UK Street Dance Challenge in Swindon on Sunday, November 4 - some of them competing for the very first time.
“A lot of our students who participated in this event were very nervous,” said principal Katie Perrin. “I didn’t expect them to come away with anything but experience.”
So Katie and the young dancers, who come from all over Welwyn Hatfield, were delighted that they beat stiff competition out of hundreds of youngsters.
The older troupe, Destiny, came sixth out of 13 teams in their category, missing a trophy by just a couple of points.
Diddi Destiny, the younger troupe, came fifth in their category.
In the duo categories, Sophie Whiter and Lucy Gray came fourth, in what Katie described as one of the toughest of the day.
In their duo section, six-year-olds Lydia Simpson and Phoebe Wilkinson came second.
Katie couldn’t be more proud of her dancers - for their performances on- and off-stage.
“Not only were they well mannered and encouraging to other students and participants, they came away with some wins,” she said.
