Brothers backflip their way into the Euro dance finals
They were soon scouted by Tashan Muir, choreographer of the Unity UK dance team that made the final of Sky1 talent show Got To Dance last year.
The pair now have a rigorous training regime of 25 to 30 hours a week and receive regular tuition from Nathaniel Jones, a dancer who has performed alongside Beyonce, Whitney Houston and Rita Ora.
Mother Angelika Shepherd, of Grange Lane, said: “This is going to be their first time on the European stage and I’m really proud. My boys have gone through countless qualifying rounds but they are now there. I’m thrilled.
“They are really dedicated and are such lovely boys. I am sure they can achieve whatever they want if they work hard enough.”
Mrs Shepherd has started selling sweets around local pubs to help raise cash to fund the team’s European trip and is hoping to attract sponsorship from local businesses.
