More than 2,000 dancers descended on Somerset to compete in the United Dance Organisation’s (UDO) National Street Dancing Championships.

The three-day tournament took place at Pontins, in Brean Sands, as 2,200 dancers competed in front of sell-out crowds, with teams showcasing their talents.

Throughout the competition, dancers and crews performed captivating routines, including various street dance styles such as popping, locking and break dance, in a wide range of different performance categories such as solos, duos, teams, and tete-a-tete 
in dynamic one-on-one and crew battles.

Simon Dibley, founder of UDO, praised the competitors.

He said: “I would like to congratulate all of the dancers on their incredible performances and also the dance teachers and parents who help to make this event so spectacular.”

Winners will now compete at the World Championships in Glasgow in May.
