Team Wales 2022
We were planning to have a break from DWC this year, but after much persuasion from the Senior team, we decided to just enter a handful of dances into the older age groups. We are thrilled that nearly all of our entries qualified, so we will be representing Wales once again this Summer in Spain.
Team Wales 2020/21
After taking a break from Dance World Cup in 2019, we were thrilled to be part of Team Wales again this year qualifying with over 50 routines!! The prestigious Dance World Cup took place in Telford in August combining the 2020 and 2021 competitions across two weeks. We were delighted to bring home more medals for Wales; Evie and Jake won bronze for their song and dance duet and our song and dance group won GOLD being crowned WORLD CHAMPIONS! A huge well done to Evie, Jake, Jazz, Belle, Lola, Lucy, Blythe, Shyla and Lucy Gand we are so incredibly proud of you!
