Titanium dance their way to contest success

A DANCE crew from Daventry achieved success at a national competition over the weekend.

Titanium, a dance street crew based at the Scorpion Academy in the town, competed at the UK Cheerleading Association’s Street Cheer Championships 2013 which took place at the Manchester Velodrome.

The team came second in their division and they fought off stiff competition from over 120 teams across the country.

The different teams varied from three-year-old teeny bops to 55-year-old dancing nuns but their hard work and effort paid off.

Scorpion Academy’s cheerleading coach, Erin Maylor, said: “The whole day was an amazing experience. We are all so excited for the next event.”

The team previously won Daventry’s Got Talent last year, held as part of Daventry Arts Festival, but have 
previously only competed 
in two competitions.

They will next compete at the Northamptonshire School Championships along with many other schools who will be judged by Got to Dance stars.

They will aso be appearing at the Winter Club Championships.
