A GROUP of local dancers showcased their moves last Wednesday to promote a national street dancing competition being held on Sunday.

Members of the Angus Centre for Performing Arts (ACPA) in Carnoustie were urging other dancers to sign up for Urban Chillax which is taking place at the Caird Hall in Dundee.

The event will see competitors aged from five to 25 come from all over Scotland to take part in the competition where dancers will be judged on their street dance style.

At last year’s event ACPA received the prize of a master-class and this year they will be sending 80 dancers to Urban Chillax.

Among them is youngster Brooke Westwood from Arbroath who is just five years old.

Fiona Forbes, owner of ACPA said: “Our students were thrilled to receive the master-class prize last year, especially when it was their first ever go at competing.

“They are also really excited about competing at next month’s event with their new-found skills, with around 80 due to take part from ACPA.

“The event is a fantastic chance for dancers, regardless of their preferred style, to get together and do their thing while also competing on a national level.”
