Year 8 Keira danced on the European stage at a championship event in Germany. 

Keira represented her Penwortham dance school DLN Dance at the UDO European Street Dance Championships last weekend. 

She has been taking part in Street Dance for a year and now is aiming for the World Championships in Blackpool later this year. 

“My mum read about DLN online around a year ago so I decided to try it out and found it enjoyable and now I am part of the team!” said Keira. 

“I love it as I enjoy dancing and it feels like one big family. 

“The European Championships were my first experience of competing abroad and it was amazing to see how many teams were involved. 

“I was in a team which finished sixth, we also had a team which finished second and others competing in solos and duets. 

“We have the World Championships at the end of August so we are all working towards that now.”
