During the Carnival week school holiday, the small but enthusiastic team of nine dancers of minis to seniors from Nicola's Move-Ment Dance Academy based at Clube CRCD Luzense in Praia da Luz (Lagos), once again arrived home with chests bursting with pride and clinking with medals following their success at the Portuguese qualifier of Dance World Cup held in Figueira da Foz.

Of the 24 dances in six different categories of style, they have qualified with 16 dances in total and won medals for 12 dances, including two gold, two silver and eight bronze. Six of these were solos and the most successful categories were tap, song and dance, and jazz.

All nine team members aged five to 20 have qualified for entry to the finals being held in Sitges, Spain in June.

This is the third year that this growing and successful school has qualified for the Dance World Cup finals.

Watch out for the fundraisers being held to support the young and ambitious dancers.
