The slick moves of Manchester Creative and Media Academies’ (MC&MA) street dance teams could secure an all-new minibus for a year.
Movers from Manchester Creative and Media Academy (Girls) qualified for Unite Dance Organisation’s (UDO) national championships after coming third in the regional finals.
They were closely followed by the team at MC&MA Boys’, which finished fourth.
Unfortunately the boys missed out on a place, but the students from MC&MA Girls’ street dance team will travel to Stoke-On-Trent for the final showcase on 21st November.
They will compete against teams from around the UK for the grand prize.
There are 66 crews in each age category; year 7 to 9 and year 10 and 11.
MC&MA students also impressed the UDO judges when they competed in duo and solo competitions.
The competition was launched in February 2010 with 22 regional qualifying events.
MC&MA Boys’ drama teacher Miss Tattersall said: “The boys came fourth which was a massive achievement, and they received a trophy.
“They were against a lot of talented dancers within their category. They were a credit to the academy throughout the competition.”
Miss Brandariz, who is the dance teacher at MC&MA Girls’, said: “The girls were great. There were some fantastic results, and we are looking forward to the final in November.”
