Street dancers come first in Essex contest
TALENTED dancers on Canvey are celebrating after coming top at the Essex Street Dance Championships.
Youngsters from the Karizma Urban Studios dance school, in Furtherwick Road, Canvey took top honours across the board as all five of their teams won championship titles in the different age categories.
More than 400 dancers from across the county went head to head in the competition to try and win best prize.
Every student from Karizma made it into the finals and received a first place trophy.
Delighted choreographer Sian Taylor said: “The students have been working extremely hard for this event and I am very proud of all of them, especially our brand new under 10 beginners team Frantix, who competed in a higher age group against experienced competitors and still took first place.”
The dancers are now making preparations for the British Street Dance Championships in March 2014.
They are also getting ready for the 101 events competition at the Grays Civic Theatre on Sunday, November 8, where they hope to be crowned the title of top dance school.
Owner David Welch said: “After fifteen years of being in the street dance industry, it is fantastic to see continuous improvement and success of our students and teachers”.
