DANCERS put their best feet for­ward in a three­day ma­jor com­pe­ti­tion and walked away with four ma­jor team tro­phies.

Samba Dance and Fit­ness, of Mar­ket Street, Whit­worth, took a team of some 50 adults and chil­dren to the Dance Fac­tor Cham­pi­onships 2018 in Pwll­heli, North Wales.

The pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted en­tries from all over Great Bri­tain and Ire­land.

In­cluded in the Whit­worth en­try were seven stu­dents from Whit­worth Com­mu­nity High School.

Freya Bing­ham and Mil­lie Eyre, both 11, were part of a team called Eclipse, which won the U12s In­ters com­pe­ti­tion.

Five other Whit­worth stu­dents Brooke Thomp­son, 11, 14-yearolds Mad­die Mel­lor and Jaye Bing­ham, Jes­sica Jones, 13, and Ge­or­gia Mel­lor, 15, were in the U16s team Phoenix which picked up the win­ners’ tro­phy.

The stu­dents all danced in a mov­ing in­ter­pre­ta­tion called ‘The Fallen’ which told the story of ‘The Boy in the Striped Py­ja­mas’.

It was picked as the best in the Show class and left some judges in tears.

Dancers also com­peted in solo classes, pairs and the par­ents’ team won a tro­phy for com­ing sec­ond with their Cirque de Samba rou­tine.
