Greta Thunberg isn’t the only teenager to champion a message of direct environmental responsibility, with Georgia, Daisy, Jonah, Kathy and Aliya from Year 12 rallying to her call for social action.
Dane Court was delighted to welcome six newly crowned world champions back to school after the summer break. Taking first place in the Under 16 category at the UDO World Street Dance Championships held in Blackpool, the girls showcased a three minute dance routine based on the popular television series “Peaky Blinders”.
Wearing the iconic costumes of suits and trademark flat caps, the six girls impressed the judging panel with their blend of complex choreography, inspired interpretation and finely honed skill and timing mixed in with a strong dash of passion and enthusiasm. Fans of the television series would be impressed with the girls’ skilful reworking of some of the storylines and themes as they successfully translated scenes into the street dance arena.
The impressive World Trophy now resides at WiseWoods Dance School where the girls are hoping to add to their silverware with their qualification into the advanced level of the competition.
Amber Piper one of Dane Court’s excellent swimmers has had huge successes in the sport this year.
