Dancers step up for awards
Talented team are just champion
A talented Lanarkshire dance crew have been reaching new heights and are on a winning streak.
Morse Code were set up last year by a group of talented friends who wanted to form their own crew.
They train at Motherwell’s South Dalziel Parish Church on a Wednesday evening and are involved in workshops taken by top choreographers.
Over the course of a trophy-laden year they have won a number of top prizes including the United Dance Organisation Under-18 Intermediate Scottish, the British Championships and the World Championships.
Not only are they doing well as a crew, but individually but they also hold a variety of top awards – scooping over 70 in the last three competitions they have entered.
The team are made up of Abbie Wedlock (12), Molly Ryan (12), Jodie Moore (13), Charlie Esson (13), Morgan Fair (14), Corey Owens (15), Ellie Gracie (16), Hannah Sandilands (16), Liam Ryan (16), Bobbilee Coull (16), Holly Dunsmore (17) and Jade Difolco (18).
Molly Ryan made the limelight back last year when she was selected to perform on stage alongside superstar Justin Bieber in front of 13,000 of his fans.
The St John Ogilvie High School pupil was ecstatic to find out the video of her dancing caught the eye of the Canadian musical icon’s choreography team when she sent it in ahead of his sell-out Purpose World Tour gig at the SSE Hydro.
Molly, who also attends street dance classes in Glasgow, said at the time: “I am really excited – I guess I better get practising now.
“My brother filmed me and sent off the video and I just got the email back from Justin’s team. I can’t wait to go.”
The email that Molly received from Bieber’s management team read: “Congratulations Molly, you’ve been selected out of thousands of submissions to join Justin Bieber on stage for the Purpose Tour in Glasgow.
“I’ll wait while you scream... Okay. Deep breath. This is really happening!”
