Most Wanted Street Dance School – Hampshire Street Dance Champions
Two teams of young dancers from the UP FOR SPORT Most Wanted Street Dance school have both won first prizes in the Hampshire street dance championships. One of the groups have only been dancing together since this summer. ‘Most Wanted Ignite’, are aged 8 to 16 and come from across the city. They won the top prize in the under-18 newcomers category.
Their teachers, Shanice Burton, Grace Hall and Amber Jerome, all aged 16, are dancers from ‘Most Wanted Crew’ which also won first prize in the under-18s intermediate category of the same Hampshire street dance championships and is taught by Carly-Ann Purcell.
Most Wanted dancers also competed in Solos and Duos, with Ellen Mcnaulty, Sofaya Looker-ere and Grace Hall achieving 1st place for their solos and Shanice Burton, Grace Hall, Shauna Burnett and Sofaya Looker-ere gaining 1st place for their Duos. Most Wanted Street Dance School is run by dance development officer Carly-Ann Purcell of the university’s Up For Sport staff. She said: “I am so proud of all my dancers, they have worked incredibly hard and have such a professional mind set. They completely deserve all they have achieved. We now cannot wait to perform at the university’s Most Wanted Dance Off at the Kings Theatre 23rd February.”
‘Most Wanted Crew’ featured on BBC1 last week on Alesha’s Street Dance Stars after auditioning in May 2011 and being picked from over 200 crews from around the UK. Street dance classes are held on Fridays (5pm-5.45pm, under 12s; 6.30-7.15pm, 12-plus) at the university’s Nuffield Sports Centre in Cambridge Road.
