UC Crew win at Wigan Premier Street Dance Championship

UC Crew was victorious winning several trophies at the prestigious ‘Wigan Premier Street Dance Championship’.

It was an extra special day for our crews as it was the first time that they have entered a street dance competition and danced in front of such a large audience. A street dance competition is unlike a break dancing battle which is a competitive dance battle 1 vs 1, the format consisted of all dancers performing moves for three minutes whilst judges picked the best of the group.

Our dancers embraced this new format of competition, it was tiring break dancing for so long but we was victorious and proud of their achievements.

They will be competing again at ‘Calling You Out Street Dance Championships’ in Knowsley, Merseyside.
