The dance school managed 27 top six placings and came away with six National titles.

Kirsty Marshall, who runs the dance school, said: “I could not be more proud of my pupils, they all work extremely hard.

“Many juggle studies and work commitments aswell as the hours they dedicate to their dancing.

“Some Pupils travel from as far as Manchester, York, Hull and Leicester to attend classes and lessons and the team atmosphere is most definitely the reason behind our success.”

Winners from the dance school were William Rogers, who retained his six-10 years boy title from 2015, Amelia Aram who won the six-10 years girl title, under 13 Girl Evie Rushworth and under 16 boy Bradley Thomas who took three titles which means he has been undefeated for four years.

The dance school, which is based at Waring Green Community Centre, teaches Ballroom, Latin, Classical and Modern to all ages and all levels.
