An all-girl hip hop dance crew is hoping to win TV talent show Got to Dance this weekend.
The 12-strong troupe Boadicea, which includes Rhimes Lecointe and Kendra Horsbugh from Holloway, Nadia Sohawon from Islington and Jen Bailey-Rae from Highbury, have so far taken the Sky One competition by storm with their street dancing.
They are now in rehearsals for the final at Kensington Olympia on Sunday in front of millions of viewers and celebrity judges Ashley Banjo, founder of dance group Diversity, former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and tap dancer and actor Adam Garcia.
Choreographer Rhimes, 26, who lives off Holloway Road and put the crew together 18 months ago, said: “Our dancing is powerful and fierce – hard hitting hip hop street dance that’s friendly too.
