Derwen College’s Derwen Dance Crew (DDC) won second place in the group competition

Our very own Derwen street dance team (DDC) have returned from a dance competition triumphant, with trophies galore.

Performing Arts students from Derwen Dance Crew were entered into an external street dance competition at Audacity events, in Wolverhampton.

Derwen College students performed brilliantly in their over-18s street dance and contemporary solos, while DDC came second in their street dance crew piece.

Derwen College performing arts teacher Opal Trevor also runs Identity School of Dance – which runs weekly dance classes for children and young adults with SEND. Students from Derwen College attend Identity as part of the Derwen external work experience, and were pleased to represent both the College and Identity.

Opal said: “It was so exciting to see Derwen College students perform so well, alongside performers from Identity, which included some former students. For many participants, this was their first external street dance competition. Everyone did so well, and I’m extremely proud of them all.”
