Local Street Dance Success at Competition

4th December 2018, 3:42pm | By Xpression StreetDance |

Local dance school Xpression StreetDance have an extra spring in their step after gaining third position in their first ever street dance competition, BDO Street Dance Championships, which took place in Chippenham at the Olympiad Leisure Centre on Sunday 2nd December.

BDO was established in 2011 and is now one of the UK’s biggest competitive street dance platforms, with hundreds of dancers travelling across the country to take part in their popular competitions. The 8 members of Xpression StreetDance’s crew Baseline Beasts entered into the Under 14s category, performing a 2 minute piece of choreography incorporating a mixture of authentic styles including Hip Hop, Breaking, House and Waacking.

Xpression StreetDance’s owner Diane Prior said “Baseline Beasts gave it all their energy and commitment and absolutely smashed it! Coming third place in their first ever competition was a massive achievement for them and their little faces lit up when they heard the results.”

This success follows a busy season for Xpression StreetDance after two sell out performances in November at The Neeld in Chippenham and appearances at Christmas Light Switch On events in Chippenham, Calne and Corsham.

Diane continued “I’m so proud of these children who have dedicated a lot of their time and energy into being the best that they can be. I’m looking forward to the future and seeing what Xpression StreetDance has to bring at similar events in the future.”

Xpression StreetDance is a genuine authentic street dance company for adults and children from Year 2 upwards based in Devizes, Chippenham, Corsham and Calne. The company teaches street styles such as Hip Hop, Breaking, Locking, Popping and House and strongly believes that, with the right teaching methods, anyone can learn to dance.
