MEMBERS of a local dance company showed off their amazing moves at a major competition in Dublin earlier this month.
Children and young people from AJ Dance Company based at the Valley Business Centre travelled to ‘Street Dancer Of The Year 2011’ - a street/hip hop competition - on Sunday, October 2.
Company owner Amy Creasey, who lives in Rathfern, was delighted with her young dancers’ performances as they finished in second place overall.
“It was our first competition with the company ‘Dance Supreme’ and for many of our dancers its was their first competition. But all our hard work, commitment and early morning driving paid off. We had some amazing tricks - breakdance, ‘the human skipping rope’ and backflips performed by 10-year-old Brian Ramsey.
Among those who shone at the event were Lucy Byers (10) who came third with her Solo Routine, Kyle Byers (13) and Hannah Rainey (11) who were third in the Pairs Dance section and Adam McGurk and Thomas O’Loan who took fifth place in the Under 8 Newcomers category.
AJ Dance Company has dancers from White City, Rathcoole, Glenville, Carnmoney, Glengormley and many other parts of the borough.
