Hi, we are the mum’s of the NuVibe Street dancers from Gloucester & on 8th March 2015 our daughters made us extremely proud. There are 7 of them in total & they range from age 10 to 12. They have been competing together in local competitions for almost a year now. In November last year they competed in the UDO Welsh Championships in Newport. Although they didn't do as well as we hoped it did give them a new focus. They wanted to compete in the UDO British Street Dance Championships in Brean, which were held over the weekend of 6th, 7th & 8th March 2015. All the girls worked really hard learning a brand new routine, with their fantastic dance teacher, Sam Shears at Streethouse Studio Dance School.
