Islington disco champs show off moves

Young disco champions showed off their favourite dance moves after scooping a series of top awards.

The budding stars from the Dance Delicious School at the Hugh Cubitt Community Centre in Collier Street, Islington, won 30 prizes at the European Championships in freestyle disco dancing.

Particularly pleased was six-year-old Chani Myrie, who came first in the under-eights category.

Teacher Lori Silmon, who has run the school for five years, said: “I wasn’t expecting to have any finalists because it is so hard. The mums also managed to find a thousand pounds for the costumes.”
