It may only be March but one Ripon dance school has already had a busy start to the year.

Switch Dance and SO Reps have attended two major dance events at opposite sides of the country. In January, members travelled to Blackpool’s Winter Gardens to compete in the Northern UDO Street Dance Championship.

Then in February they were at the York Barbican participating in the Dance On! Yorkshire event.

After being presented with their certificate of attendance by the Lord Mayor of York they were thrilled to be awarded one of only five trophies on offer for best choreography.

Schools Out manager Sam Hesketh said: “Its wonderful to see all the students’ hard work pay off, I’m so unbelievably proud of them all. The students had a fantastic day.”

They have also been asked to perform at the 21 Engineers’ homecoming event in April and will finish for the summer with their annual show, taking place this year at Harrogate Theatre.
