Forty of the schools dancers competed in Juste Dance 2012 at the Liverpool Empire on Sunday 25th March and walked away with three first places and three trophies on the day.
Judging the event were Liverpools own Leanne Campbell who currently presents the Juice FM breakfast show; Pepito, aka Carlos Estigarriba from Australia, a worldwide performer and teacher of the dance skill Bboy; and Anthony Jones, an experienced professional dancer and owner of his own dance school based in Warrington.
The dancers competed in the Intermediate section with their routine ‘Bamboo’, which took the first award of the night, closely followed by a first place for ‘Latin Fever’ in the Seniors section and then ‘Heart of Asia’ took first place in the Open Age section. The dancers were delighted to have been awarded the ‘triple’ and enjoyed every minute of their performances at the Liverpool Empire.
School Principal Kelly Tobin said ‘I would like to say a HUGE congratulations to all my amazing students for completing 'the hat trick' at Liverpool Empire! The standard of this competition was extremely high this year so to walk away with one winners title, let alone three, is incredible. I think we may be needing more shelf space for the three enormous trophies.
During these events I find myself whizzing around ensuring that the event goes smoothly for all the dancers and sometimes I don't always get the chance to tell them how extremely proud I am of them. Their talent still astounds me with each and every event that they attend and their behaviour and decorum has been impeccable at every outing!’
