XCITE-ment is building for a street dance crew after they won a spot in world championships this summer.

The XCITE crew from Crewe competed in the 10 and under age category at the United Dance Organisation (UDO) North Wales street dance championships.

The competition was held at the Northgate Arena in Chester, and the five-strong team, aged between seven and 10, came second from 16 crews.

Their second place qualified them for the UDO world championships in Glasgow in August and the European championships in Germany next year.

They were judged on factors including timing, technique and the difficulty of their routine.

The XCITE crew are members of Miss Caroline’s School of Dance, and train twice a week at St Mark’s church hall in Crewe with their instructor Jack Robinson.

“We are extremely proud of XCITE,” said dance school founder and principal Caroline Foxley.

“This was only their second competition, so to achieve second place and qualify for the world and European championships is a massive achievement.

“The hard work and dedication the students, parents and Jack, their teacher, puts in, has paid off.

“They are a shining example of our schools’ talent, and we look forward to their future success.”
