Woodcroft Pupils Excel in Solo Dance Category
Two members of Woodcroft’s Dance Team achieved individual success in the National School’s Dance Competition on Friday 7th December. They submitted solo videos for judgeing and overjoyed to both place in the Top 10 nationally. What an achievement!
Danis and Atifa, both Y5, have been part of the Dance Team for the past year. COVID19 has prevented team events taking place, but this didn’t stop the girls representing Woodcroft in the solo dance category.
