Students at a performing arts academy in Stevenage have taken home an impressive haul of trophies after competing in the UDO World Street Dance Championships in Glasgow.
Warriorz, which is based at the King George V Playing Fields pavillion, is a street dance and performing arts academy owned by Zara Richards, who is also the main dance teacher.
She and a team of dancers were selected to compete in the championships last month, with Zara and her brother, Josh, taking first place in the Over 16 Advanced Duo category.
Kajetan Migdal, a 13-year-old from Letchworth, took first place for the Under 14 Solo category.
Zara said: “This is the biggest competition for dancers in the world. A few dancers from Warriorz qualified earlier this year and were selected to be part of Great Britain team.
