Two members of the Demigods also secured first place in the duos sections, with several students gaining places in the Six Nations Championships out of more than 90 dancers in each age category. This will take place in November.

The dancers will also be competing with a few new team members on April 7 at another Lancashire World Championship qualifying event testing out some new choreography.

The teams have been training with choreographer Demi-Leigh Naylor, working alongside Principal Harriet Gingell.

Harriet said: “We did not expect our huge success so early into our competitive journey. Getting into the world finals in the first competition of this season really is a dream come true for both students, teachers and incredibly proud parents.”
