Wyke win at the Winter Gardens

Students celebrating at the Winter Gardens

Congratulations are once again in order to the College’s Dance Troupe who have reached the National Final of the ‘That’s Showbiz’ dance competition following their success at the semi-final stages at the Blackpool Winter Gardens.

Wyke were the only act from 20 participants from an educational establishment, with the other 19 competitors coming from professional dance schools.

The dancers ended the day winning 3 trophies, placing 2nd in the senior category for their classic piece, 3rd in the senior category for the contemporary piece and best concept for their contemporary piece which was performed to The Greatest by Sia.

Following the event, Head of Dance Toni Daddy said: “Myself and Hannah could not be more proud of the girls. To get through to the semi-finals was an outstanding achievement in itself, and we knew the competition would be extremely strong considering we are a Sixth Form College up against dance schools that train over 8 hours a week. But every single one of the 15 students that we took were phenomenal and upped their game on the stage.”

In March, the students will perform at the Liverpool Echo Arena to compete for a National Title. We wish them every success in the final stage of the competition.
