Young dancers to meet the stars

YOUNG Torrington dancers are to rub shoulders with the stars after success in a regional schools competition.

Torrington Streetz Dance Crew have been named as the third best hip hop dance group in the South West!

The pupils of Great Torrington Community School competed against 14 other schools from all over the region at Plymouth’s Oceanna nightclub.

The school’s 16 strong ‘elite’ crew will now travel to the national finals in Stoke-On-Trent on November 21, where they will compete and also meet Ashley Banjo of Diversity, Kimberley Wyatt of Pussycat Dolls, Britain’s Got Talent winner and Step Up Movie star George Sampson and top British rapper Chipmunk.

Streetz Dance Crew owner and choreographer Amy Avery said: “It was a great day and the guys did fantastically well, I am very proud of them. They have practised relentlessly for the past four weeks and it’s really paid off. They are all extremely excited about going up to Stoke-on-Trent and rubbing shoulders with the stars. They deserve it.”

Director of Sport at Torrington School, Andy Bloodworth said: “ These youngsters have worked really hard for what they have achieved, the school is very proud of them. Street dance has become one of our most popular activities over the past few years and has grown remarkably. Amy and instructor Keeley Hooper , an ex-pupil at the school , have done a fantastic job and we hope it continues to do well for years to come.”

Streetz Dance Crew has classes for all ages, from Streetz Totz to Adults Streetz. To find out more, contact Amy Avery on 07854975823 or amyavery10@yahoo.com. Or contact Adrian Avery at Great Torrington Community School.
