Urban City: Chance2Dance competition at Indigo 02


On Sunday 24 November 2019, we took our performance troupe to The Indigo 02 to take part in their second competition (ever). The troupe joined 27 other dance schools from across the UK to compete in front of some today's top talent and influencers in the industry. The judges consisted of Sky 1's Got To Dance winner Lukas Macfarlene, Artistic Director of Addict Dance Academy Ben Davies, The Royal Family's tour manager and owner of influential dance event companies HDI and Soar UK Josh Ricketts, and founder of Dance Awards UK Yann Bolenge.

We are so proud and pleased to share with you that we came home having placed 1st! In addition to winning the open-troupe competition, out of 1,000 dancers our Division member - Harry was also handpicked by Lukas Macfarlene to join him on a dance intensive in Italy which will be led and taught by Lukas himself as well as other dancers who have choreographed for artists such as Madonna, Rihanna and Ariana Grande. 

The Division


Today we decided to take the plunge and enter our performance troupe The Division in to their first ever competition.

Not quite knowing what to expect and while witnessing some spectacular dance troupes as we entered the arena we were all definitely filled with some mixed emotions. Our dancers fired themselves up and after taking to the floor to put our work in to practice, we're very happy to announce that we didn't only just qualify for the British Championships, we also placed 1st in our category.

We will now be getting ready to compete against street dance crews from all over England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales and we cant wait to get in the studio to work on new material. The British Championships will be taking place at the Blackpool Tower in March 2020.

Well done as always guys, you make us proud as always.

You will love them" Brenda Burgess Cllr. - Mayor of Crawley

Shaun’s adult classes are by far the best, his friendly nature makes learning to dance enjoyable. Shaun’s choreography is brilliant and with a new routine each class I’m always looking forward to the next one! I have also made some really good friends and have great fun in participating in projects the Academy are involved inNatasha Willson - Adult Class.
