Crew24 are Cornwall’s first youth street dance company who are a self funded group of girls and boys ages 14 – 21 who specialize in street dance and hip hop.They started around 18months ago, as a splinter group from Cornwall’s much loved funky feet dance school. There first showcase was at the hall for Cornwall which then lead them onto contacts in London where they were asked to do a special performance at the world famous London palladium. Here they wowed the audience who gave them a standing ovation and an invitation to return again in February 2009.A few weeks following this a dance company in Liverpool asked them to compete in `DANCE 2008`. It is the biggest dance competition of its kind, their mission to find the best dance school in the U.K. the judges have traveled from one end of the British Isles to the other. Heats are held in various regions, including Scotland, Wales, and throughout the whole of England itself. Regional heat winners go on to the Grand Final adjudicated by top celebrity judges, where they are in the running to win fabulous cash prize and the prestigious `Dance 2008` title.Crew24 traveled to Birmingham on Sunday 12th October and once again blew the judges away with their incredible talent. They have now won the right to dance in the national grand final in Blackpool in January 2009.they also won the beat costume category in the senior section – which was from ages 12 and above. They are the only dancers to have made it through from the whole of the southwest, including Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. Just as CREW24 were still buzzing from their success the senior judge from the panel of the day came over to speak to them and their director/choreographer Fiona Barclay, ’he told me that he was totally amazed by the whole piece, he thought they were as good if not better than some of the professional commercial dance groups that he had seen“. He continued to praise the unique choreography, which included some amazing lifts and work with the use of hats and masks.So it seems that 2009 is to be a busy year for CREW24 as not only do they dance their way through Britain but they continue with there fundraising – as a youth group we do all we possibly can to raise funds - says Aaron Niles age 16 – up to date we have raised enough to get us all our costumes. We are grateful to Fiona who gives us all her time free of charge and hope to make her, aswell as proud by coming home with the national title in 2009.CREW24 are looking for new crew members,

Funky Freestyle Dancing for all ages is what Cornish-based South African dance teacher Marci Pearce has been providing to classes totalling over 100 in the Helston area since moving to Cornwall three years ago - and now she is hoping that her unique style of dance and fitness routines will appeal in Newquay.Marci, who has a degree in Drama and Dance, worked originally as a freelance teacher in schools but quickly realised the potential and appeal of what she was developing - particularly amongst young people."This type of dance really helps people to build confidence big time" said Marci as she introduced herself at the first new class being held at Newquay's Heron Tennis Centre indoor facility.The combination of hip-hop combined with circus acrobatics and funky freestyle is something which really inspires and looks great in shows."But there is something for everyone and we like to follow new trends as they develop and show that anyone can be a dancer" she said."I love the vibrant lifestyle in Newquay and that's what I'd like to contribute to".The classes take place each Tuesday evening at The Heron Centre in Trenance Park with classes for those under 12 being held from 6-7pm and over 12s from 7-8pm. Cost is £5 per session with the first class half price. No need to book - just come along.For further information Marci can be contacted on 077 902 29426 or email@example.com
