Due to a very successful GottaDance Holiday Weekend this year we are filling up the Trouville fast! Please speak to Glenn and Nikki asap to secure your place as we are going to sell our allocation out!!
A huge well done to the GottaDance competitors on the weekend. A big pat on the back for Zak and Chloe who after delivering a demonstration and helping GottaDance at the Sibbertoft Fete Saturday 7th September they then took to the floor Sunday in the Central SuperLeague Championships in Cheslyn Hey. In their second Championship event they managed 2nd in Ballroom and Latin Junior Beginners and tried some of their open content for the first time. They are moving on quickly especially since Chloe is a complete beginner to Ballroom with just a few months training from scratch and already looking quite the part!
In Cambridge the same day GottaDances` children danced well with Bronwyn making a 4th and 5th in the Junior Silver event and Megan reaching the Final in Juvenile Pre-Bronze Ballroom coming 7th.
The Adults manged four 1st places, three 3rd places, two 2nds a 3rd and a 4th, 5th and 6th placing.
Cracking work everyone and some very busy events!!
