Our Dance Factor Lincolnshire winning groups Game Over, D-Feet and Resuss did us proud performing at Lincoln Castle's 'Magna Party'. The groups opened the show for Britain's Got Talent winners Diversity, and were able to have a sneaky peek during the day at the professional dance troupe's rehearsals. Check out our gallery for full images from the day.
Last night's Grand Final was AMAZING - all crews upped their game and it was a very tough call for the judges. The atmosphere in the sell out Engine Shed was electric! Every single dancer who took part in the project and competed at any of our events or sessions should feel extremely proud.
The results were as follows;
Dance Factor Lincolnshire Champions - Game Over (North Hykeham)
Best Choreography - D-Feet (Holbeach)
Best Newcomer - Resuss (Caistor)
Well done to these crews - bring on Diversity!
