Members of Scribble, the Universal Dance Junior Street Dance Crew, became British champions in a competition at Newcastle.
They qualified in 2018 for their place in the BDO British Street Dance Championships and Lindsay Willis-Wood from Universal Dance said the competition standard was “crazy high”.
The crew is made up of students from local primary schools aged eight to 12 years and if you know of children who would be interested in joining them auditions are to be held on Tuesday, May 21, from 5.30-7pm.

Graffiti the Universal Dance senior crew competed at an amateur level for the third time and came fourth in the 16 and under category.
Other successes were:
Meg, second in eight years and under amateur solos
Meg and Georgia, second in eight years and under first timer duos
Sophie and Fleur, Champions in 12 and under amateur duo British Champions.
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.
