NATD Blackpool Medalist of the Year 2022 Weekend Review.

After a long 2 year break we FINALLY got back to competing at the “NATD Medalist of the Year Grand Finals” held in the beautiful Winter Garden’s, Empress Ballroom! 💫

A huge thank you must go to the NATD MOY committee for running such a wonderful event- this truly is a highlight in our calendar, and we all had such a great time from start to finish, we already can’t wait for next year.

 

We took 45 members of our amazing competition squad to dance their hearts out on that floor and my goodness did they shine so brightly!!! 🤩

 

We have had the most FANTASTIC weekend along with some absolutely brilliant results in both the Solo and Couple’s events! The standard of dancing was incredibly high this year with big entry numbers which makes our results even more special 🥹

 

Across our team we now proudly have:

 

30 Nationwide Champions🥇🏆

 21 Nationwide Vice- Champions 🥈

16 3rd Placing’s 🥉

19 4th Placing’s 🏅

8 5th Placing’s 🏅

8 6th Placing’s 🏅

1 7th Place 🏅

38 Semi Finalists

17 Quarter Finalists

 

A HUGE bunch of silverware to bring back home to Essex! 🤩🏆 We really are so very proud of each and every one of you, whether a veteran ‘Blackpool’ dancer or an absolute newbie to the dancing world, you all have been absolutely fantastic this weekend!

To all the dancing family who came and supported, cheered & danced in the gangways we really couldn’t get through the weekend without your love and support- you are all such vital members of our team, and we would be lost without you guys (and it would be very quiet without your cheering! 😜

 

We must also say a massive thank you to your incredible ‘Partnering Team’ (Rianna, Rosie, David, Nico) whose support, dedication, love, guidance, stamina, time, and effort really helps to make these weekends successful. We really do have the best team and we are very lucky to have ALL of them with us ❤️

 

And finally, without our very own ‘Queen Janina’ none of this weekend would have been possible. Our pillar of strength who has created the most incredible dance school in the last 3 years deserves all our love and thanks- YOU are simply the best 🌟

We will be writing spotlight pieces over the next few days on both our Under 16 team and Adult’s as each and every one of you deserves your recognition but for now…we’re off for a super long sleep and some food other than McDonald’s 🤭

Keep your eyes peeled for the rest of the Blackpool write up’s, photo’s & videos…
