Dancers qualify for national competition

Have your say

Young dancers from Portsmouth have qualified for a national dance competition this weekend.

Scarlett Rose School of Dance in North End has 22 girls and one boy competing in Blackpool representing the south east in the classical and modern sequence dancing category.

Freestyle dancers from the school have also qualified for the freestyle and rock ‘n’ roll finals next month.

The dance school has raised nearly £3,200 to fund the coach travel needed. They would especially like to thank funding they received from ARISE – an alliance of business partners in Portsmouth who support community activities in the city.
