Young dancers from Sophie Johnson’s Dance It Live it dance school have wowed judges at the 2015 World Championship dancing competition.

A group of 15 young people from Dance It Live It competed at Blackpool at The World Championships and scooped a collection of awards at the competition which was held in Blackpool Winter Gardens at the end of June.
With over a thousand dancers representing 114 dancing schools from across the globe, the school returned with a total of 17 trophies including one for the new World Champion 15 year old Kieran Price.

Dance teacher Sophie Johnson said “We are all overjoyed at our achievements. All the young people worked extremely hard to achieve this level of success and should be proud of themselves and their unequivocal commitment”.

The competition took place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th June 2015
