The school’s u10 Advanced crew D*Vious were runners-up, as were Tia Robbie and Zara McQueen in the u12 Novice Duo section.

Numerous other competitors also made it to the finals in solos, crews and quads including: Kyle Fox - eighth in the u14 Novice Solo section, Sophia Docherty - eighth in u12 Novice Solo section, D*Vestate - fifth in the u14 Novice section, D*Votion - seventh in the u14 Advanced section.

Some parents also had the chance to get on stage with D*Vintage Parent Team taking fifth place in a very busy category.
