More DDF success
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.
