Girls picked for dance Olympics
A TEAM of aspiring dancers have been chosen to represent the country in an international dance competition.
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 danceaddicts.co.uk.
