The IDTA Nationwide Competition was held over the weekend of the 27th and 28th October 2018 in the Winter Gardens Blackpool, the school has competed for many years and this year was no exception. With competitors in many age groups and pupils learning the routines and practicing throughout the year the time to compete had arrived. For some it was their first visit and the splendour of the Winter gardens and the occasion was overwhelming.
An 8am early start on Saturday for the children’s modern sequence Under 12’s partnership performed well and there were very proud parents, in the afternoon the adults took to the floor in the classical sequence competition in four age groups, all competitors danced well resulting in two finals and two trophies. For the mans over 50 a second place and the ladies over 50’s, sixth place.
The Sunday began with the repeated early call when our star dance competitor took to the floor, again performing very well with proud parents the reverse of Saturday children dancing their classical sequence all that hard work paid off with smiles they competed well against very strong competition an understanding and desire to improve for next year.
The adults turned to there modern sequence competition and again all performed very well with two finals reached the men’s over 50’s a third place and the ladies over 50’s a seventh place.
So a little tired on return but the desire to improve and return next year.
A great weekend had by all.
