On January 24th 2016, our two USA-bound teams Wildfire (youth pom) and Flames (senior pom) travelled to Blackpool to compete at the ICC Northern Championships at the Norbreck Castle. Both teams wowed the crowd with their strong, energetic routines and represented the program in an outstanding manner. First up were Wildfire who performed their Love themed US Finals routine for the first time. The team made their coach Shannen and their teammates super proud and after a nervewracking wait to awards they were crowned DIVISION CHAMPIONS in a difficult category! Next it was the Flames turn and they set the floor alight with their Worlds routine and received many compliments on their energetic and fast paced routine. Tensions ran high as we waited for awards but the team were very proud to be awarded DIVISION CHAMPIONS for senior pom in a tough division. To top off the excitement, the Flames were also announced as the dance GRAND CHAMPIONS meaning they outscored all senior dance teams in the competition. This is the 5th year running that the team have won these two titles and the girls and their coach Suzanne were bursting with pride!
Both teams are excited to refine their routines and build on judges feedback ready for future competitions! Thank you to ICC for running a great event! And thank you to everyone for their support over the weekend!
