A TALENTED group of Tyldesley dancers tapped their way to victory gaining top awards in a competition.

The dancers are members of the 180 Dance Club on Elliott Street, in Tyldesley.

Rachael Stanley, 21, won the adult championship, Laura Wakefield , 17, is under 18s champion, Amber Norcroft, 13, under 14s champion and Holly Dillon topped the under 16s class.

Tutor Donna Wyatt, who has been teaching for 11 years at the club, is proud of her dancers' success.

She said: "They did really well and worked extremely hard. It is not often that every child from one dance club comes away from the competition with a prize. The youngsters were really pleased with themselves and so were their parents. They were wonderful."

The club holds dance classes four times a week and its senior member, Rachael, is now taking lessons at the 180 Dance Club and will sit her teaching exam in Blackpool.

The next major competition is in Scarborough in two weeks time.
