Kerik­eri-based DDF Dance has again won a swag of awards, this time at the Novem­ber 24 Bat­tle in the Bay dance com­pe­ti­tion in Hast­ings. Six stu­dents trav­elled to Hawke’s Bay where they en­tered seven di­vi­sions, qual­i­fied for the fi­nals in four, and brought home three awards. Shay­lah Har­ris, 11, won the solo ju­nior di­vi­sion for the sec­ond year in a row while Pey­ton Baker, 10, came sec­ond and Solomon Dickey fourth. Shay­lah and Alexis King, 10, came first in the cell di­vi­sion, also for the sec­ond year run­ning, while the full crew made it to the fi­nals and placed fifth equal. Tu­tor Alan­nah Cur­tis said the kids did an out­stand­ing job com­pet­ing without her for the first time. Shay­lah led the group and did hair and makeup for all six mem­bers.
