The BX Dance students will be part of the International Dance Organisation’s Team GB at the hip-hop, break dance and electric boogie championships in Bremerhaven, Germany – which start tomorrow and go on until Sunday.

The dancers are Kaitlin Moore-Haines, Millie Warne, Rebecca Davies and Adam Rogers from Hitchin’s Priory School, Chephra Morgan, Tia Martin and Marli-Su Lamptey from Fearnhill in Letchworth, Bethan Reeve and Anya Turness from Hitchin Girls’ School, and college student Tyresse Hare.

BX Dance founder and principal Rebecca Alfano told the Comet: “I’m so proud of this talented group of young people. They have fought hard to win a place on Team GB and now have amazing opportunities overseas. We wish them all lots of luck.”

She added that this was BX Dance’s “most successful campaign yet”.
