A GROUP of dancers from J G Dance have won places in the semi-finals of the British Arts National Dance Competition.
The dancers, aged between five and 17, are now hoping to gain top marks within their group and chosen style of dance in a bid to reach the next stage of the competition.
The styles being performed include ballet, modern jazz, national, tap, singing and drama.
To win their way to the finals at the Hammond Theatre in London, the dancers will need to rank within the top four across the country in their category.
