On Friday 6th January 2020, two very talented dancers, Wiktoria 5S and Julia 2W, travelled all the way to Blackppo for the 'All England 2020 Championships'.
Both dancers tried their very best to get into the finals, but it was not easy.
Wiktoria started in two categories called, "The Under 12 All England Latin Championships" and "The Under All England Ballroom Championships." Both categories had 118 dancers, competing for first place to be the England Champion. Wiktoria performed four dances: Cha Cha, Jive, Waltz and Quickstep.
Jullia was in the "Under 8 and Under 10" categories. She also danced the Cha Cha, Jive, Waltz and Quickstep. Julia made the semi-final in both categories, which is an amazing achievement at such a young age. There were many dancers competing in these categories too.
Both gilrs danced solidly for two days on Saturday 7th January and on Sundat 8th Janunary. Wiktoria stated that it was tiring work, but they enjoyed every minute and can't wait for their next competition.
I (Mrs Atkinson) saw footage of the competition of both Julia and Wiktoria, and I was amazed by what I saw. Such precision of footwork, professional style and above all connection with the judges and the audience. I would have placed both girls as champion of their categories.
Well done our dancing superstars! Keep practising at home, and we hope to see you back on the dance floor very soon.
