Six tal­ented young­sters from ‘Dance Ad­dicts’ have qual­i­fied for Team Eng­land and will com­pete in the Freestyle Olympics in Au­gust. Four-year-old Rose Bar­ton, Lily-Mae Don­nely, six, and Ash­ley Far­icy, 11, each qual­i­fied in Solo sec­tions of the com­pe­ti­tion.

Six-year-old Lexi-Mae McNally and Meg Evans, 14, qual­i­fied in both Solo and Slow Dance, and 15-year-old Alice Flood qual­i­fied in Slow­dance.

Allan Low­den, school prin­ci­pal, said: “We’re all very proud of them.

“At the Team Eng­land qual­i­fier, which was run in Leeds, there were around 30 other schools there from all over Eng­land with ap­prox­i­mately 300 dancers at the event.

“We man­aged to get eight dancers to qual­ify across the two styles (freestyle and slow­dance) which we are re­ally proud of as we only had two qual­i­fiers last year.”

Dance Ad­dicts runs classes at Christ the King School in Prest­bury Vil­lage Hall and DW Sports. For more in­for­ma­tion go to dancead­
