Solihull Editorial 21st May, 2024   0

A STREET dance troupe proved they were a cut above the rest when they came out on top in a competition.

Judges were impressed with the for slick formations, high energy, technique and skills – performed in abundance by Lyndon School’s year 9 and 10 team.

They, alongside the years 7 and 8 team, spent weeks choreographing their routines, having perfected their technique during a special workshop with Solihull-based pro-street dancer Tom Lowe.

They performed their two-minute-thirty sequences with passion and flair, packing in breaking steps like top rocks, freezes and other essential moves needed under the competition rules.

The year 7 and 8 team came an impressive sixth in a fiercely category.

Starry and Chris – from year 9, won the individual freestyle competition, where all pupils from each school were taught a small motif and then had to perform this to the judges and improvise their own freestyle to finish off




Also featuring in the competition top 10 were Lilly Mae from year 7, Maja and Assinat from year 8, and Emily-Rose from year 10.

Ava, year 8, said: “I can’t wait to do this again next year, if only we could be a part of more competitions like this is school.”


Sophie McCoy, Performing Arts teacher at Lyndon School, said: “They have rehearsed every week after school, and most have gone away and created choreography to contribute to the overall routines at home in their own time. They fully deserve this achievement.”
