A STREETDANCE group from Stretford have been crowned European champions.

Superkidz, a group of 10-12 year olds who practice Gorse Hill Studios, represented Great Britain at the UDO European Streetdance Championships and beat off stiff competition to win the European title.

Superkidz member, Navayah Levy-English, 11, said: “I have been dancing for almost six years and this is my biggest achievement yet, I am so proud to say that I am now a European Champion.

“I am now looking forward to train hard to try and win the UDO World Championships at the SECC in Glasgow in August.”

The eight youngsters travelled to Dusseldorf, in Germany, alongside ‘Blanc’, a group of six 15-18 year olds who placed 4th at the competition.

Blanc’s members currently attend the Aim Sky High Company performing arts school, which is part of Aspire Dance Studios, in Stretford.

Christina Taylor, the 22-year-old founder of Aim Sky High Company, said the school aims to engage children and young people off all ages and abilities.

“The Aim Sky High Company endeavors to make the performing arts accessible to all by remaining low cost.

“The children and young people that attended all worked hard and fundraised in order to travel to Germany.

“They gave everything they possibly could to do their best and I am so happy for them.”

The Aim Sky High Company have also won UK Hip Hop Championships and UDO North West Championships this year as well as performing at various shows and festivals.
