Lindsay, who teaches the crews, said she was over the moon with the results. “Both teams dedicate a tremendous amount of time to training, and their hard work shows and pays off when they get results like this.

Lindsay says she holds the only accredited street dance qualification in the world. She was trained by Andy Instone of Urban Strides.
