Premier Dance Academy recently attended for the first time the ' Wessex Dance Festival', Bournemouth back in October, and we absolutely loved it. The results below speak for themselves as to what an amazing weekend Premier had. :) Loads of competitors in a section, with some categories having over 50 dancers in, with such a high standard of dance.
So many dancers came home winning the 'Only way is Wessex title!'Some only being in there new age group a matter of weeks!! I am so proud of every single one of you who attended the festival. Just to top the weekend off , Sacha Buitenhaus went on to win the INTERMEDIATES OF INTERMEDIATES'!!
The weekend's atmosphere was absolutely electric. Again everyone so supportive of each other. Thinks its fair to say we had Premier results for Premier dancers!! Take a look!!
