Fresh head to British Dance Championships

Six young street dancers are heading to the national championships after they were given a £4,000 grant by Find Your Talent Bolton.

22nd February 2010

 

The girls, who call themselves Fresh, are 17-year-old Abbie Holden, Sarah Kellett and Laura Brady, both aged 16, and 15-year-olds Faye Wright, Ellie Wright and Lucy Darby.
They are all hip-hop and street dance students at Sunshine Studios in Newport Street, Bolton. All of the girls are working towards their Silver Arts Award.
They will now compete against other dance troupes from all over the country at the British Dance Championships, which are held in Somerset in February.
The grant, from FYT Bolton's "Young People's Arts Award" fund, will be used to pay for costumes, practice room hire, dance classes and accommodation at the championships. 
Studio director Josh Ricketts, who helped them get the funding, said: “The girls were over the moon when they found out. If they didn’t get this grant, they couldn’t have gone.”
