Big win for young dancers

Pupils at a borough dance company have won big in a national freestyle disco competition at the weekend.

The dancers from North East Dance Co, based in Shiremoor, came away with 19 trophies including four first places and nine second places.

This marked the end of the school’s first year as a dancing school and a huge improvement in the youngsters’ abilities.

The school will shortly be moving to a fully equipped premises in North Shields, just next to Wet N Wild.

They are holding an opening day at the new studio on Friday, July 26, from 10am to 4pm.
