Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

MEM­BERS of a dance school busted their best moves as part of a show­case.

Sylk Dance Academy, based in Bro­ken Cross, cel­e­brated its 6th an­niver­sary with more than 100 chil­dren per­form­ing to friends and fam­ily.

The young­sters aged three to 16 came showed off their street dance, com­mer­cial street dance, cheer­lead­ing, break­dance and con­tem­po­rary dance moves.

One of the high­lights in­cluded the all-boys break­dance group.

Teacher Rikki Prince said: “The boys are a plea­sure to teach and they work in­cred­i­bly hard in class to get some great re­sults.”

The Street Totz group, fea­tur­ing chil­dren aged three to six, was an­other hit mo­ment for the 300 spec­ta­tors.

Rikki added: “The show was an op­por­tu­nity for the dancers who are part of the dance school to per­form and dis­play their achieve­ments over the last year.”

Mean­while, the Sylk Dance Academy com­pe­ti­tion team ‘Haz­ard’ cel­e­brated a third place in the BDO Bri­tish Street Dance Cham­pi­onships in Black­pool. The com­pe­ti­tion also saw two solo dancers mak­ing it to the soloist fi­nals.

The academy’s dance teams are now pre­par­ing for their next com­pe­ti­tion on may 24.
