Students from LK's School of Dance will be travelling to Germany next month to take on dancers at the European Street Dance Championships.

The dance school, which holds classes in Diss, Palgrave, Eye, Old Buckenham, Mulbarton and Thorpe St Andrew, has 19 members who have qualified for the competition.

All 12 members of Diss-tinction, who are aged 13 to 19, have qualified as a duo or single in addition to as a crew. And the seven members of Diss-ruption, aged seven to 11, have qualified for single and duo dances. They are waiting to find out if they have qualified as a group too.

The European competition will take place from May 13 to 15 and Lynne Bailey, who started the school nine years ago, said she is very proud of her dancers.

She said: 'The competition is massive. There are dancers from all over Europe. And it is brilliant we have qualified. I am ecstatic for them and immensely proud. It is just a fantastic experience for them.'
