Dance is one of the UK'S favourite entertainment activities with multiple hit TV shows such as "Dancing On Ice" and "Strictly Come Dancing" benefiting from our love of a good jig.

Sway Dance, the group responsible for the three welsh hopefuls who have qualified are so proud of their students and their dedicated dance teacher Nicola Hudson. They're also looking to find a sponsor for the Team Wales tracksuits and are appealing to local businesses to ask for their support to help the students participate in this worldwide competition.
