A hip-hop dance crew earned top honours in a competition that features more than 10,000 dancers.
Footclan, made up of Tai Son, Cody Ridley, Gabe Richard, Francis Richard, Austin Gregg, Justin Schwan and Kiana Smith, competed in the Surrey Festival of Dance. In one of the largest amateur dance competitions in North America, the dancers compete over five weeks.
Footclan won their age division and returned for the group dance challenge, where the first-place teams competed against each other. Footclan advanced to the finals, earning the Grand Champion title.
Footclan trains at Vibrant Dance Studio five times per week in various forms of hip hop.
The group performs for Nanaimo fans during Vibe’s year-end show at the Port Theatre June 16.
