Youngsters from across the country descended on Loughborough to perform under the watchful eyes of Youth Sport Trust ambassador and former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, Bounce from Flawless and Lizzie Gough from Alesha Dixon’s Street Stars, in a bid to win the YST Factor.
Da Luniz from Our Lady & St. Chad Catholic Academy in Wolverhampton were crowned the winners with their unique street dance style take on Humpty Dumpty, which the judges all liked for its originality.
Dance teacher at Our Lady & St Chad, Zoe Phillips, said: “It was amazing for our students to win. The standard was amazing so I’m really proud we won and it will be exciting for them all to perform again.”
The winners fought off competition from young people from across the country to secure their place to perform at the 2016 School Games national finals, backed by National Lottery funding from Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust.
