Street Dance Crew Game Over from North Hykeham took the title of Dance Factor Lincolnshire Champions at the Grand Final of the competition.
The group battled against fourteen other dance crews, selected from regional finals across Lincolnshire, to win the award. The judges were impressed by the variety of hip hop and street dance styles that Game Over incorporated into their energetic computer-game themed routine. Also recognised for their great performances were Resuss from Caistor, who were awarded Best-Newcomer for their stunning performance, and D-feet from Holbeach who took the award for Best Choreography.
The three winning groups will now have the exciting opportunity to perform as one of the warm-up acts to Britain’s Got Talent Winner’s Diversity at a special Magna Carta event taking place at Lincoln Castle on Sat 13 June.
Alice Carter, from the InspireDance committee said:
“This was the most exciting Dance Factor Final ever, with the standard of dance from all the finalist’s amazingly high. All groups improved enormously from the Semi Finals and left the judges with some very tough decisions to make. It was fantastic to see so many young people enjoying dance, performing on stage and supporting one another throughout the entire day”
All the dance crews taking part in the competition were formed earlier this year as part of the Dance Factor Lincolnshire project which provides free street dance sessions for young people aged 11- 18. Thanks to funding from The People’s Millions, this year’s competition has been able to expand to cover seven regions of Lincolnshire, with over 750 young people benefitting from up to ten week of lessons with a professional dance teacher.
