Behind the scenes a team of dance ninjas ensured the day ran smoothly and ensured that everyone was looked after. A competition is only as successful as the team behind it and therefore a big thank you to everyone who helped in making the day amazing….. You know who you are!

We are proud to be ending the year on such a high note as a strong team of dancers and supporters.
We took the opportunity to launch our new school logo and tracksuits which everyone wore with pride …….. you all looked great!   And of course we had lots of fun during the day being the crazy dance family that we are.
