Gold Success at Tap Dancing World Championship
“My time at the Tap World Championships in Germany was incredible. To be chosen for Team GB was an amazing honour but to be in Germany with them was immense! It was such a great experience living as a team, staying in our own hotel and making loads of new friends within the squad. The atmosphere in the arena was electric, meeting lots of people from different countries as far afield as Australia & Japan and making international friends! The quarterfinal was the best we’d ever danced, when we got through to the semi-finals we managed to find something extra & topped our performance. To get a place in the final at the world championships was phenomenal; we were one of the top six formations in the world! The amount of support from parents in the arena and fellow adult team mates in the audience really boosted our energy and we gave the performance of our lives! To be crowned the world champions, the best in the world, was the most insane, surreal feeling I have ever experienced! It was an amazing experience, an opportunity I feel privileged to have been given, and one I will remember for the rest of my life”! - Jessica Hirst (9NAS).
