Dancers compete at Dance World Cup

Dancers compete at Dance World Cup

We were delighted to have 5 dancers join Team Scotland for the 2018 Dance World Cup...

The girls, who are all members of our competitive team, Starshine, travelled to Sitges near Barcelona to take part in the international competition against dancers from across the globe. Back at home, we kept up to date with all the news and performances over the full week on a Live Stream and through social media with regular updates on a special event page where you can still view video clips and photos. (Visit the event page here) Unfortunately due to a busy schedule, we weren't able to keep up with all the Team Scotland medals and routines but they were brilliant overall!


The ballet sections were really tough and the standard was extremely high. Iana Phillips (13) performed a variation from 'La Bayadere'; Iana currently studies Grade 4 and Intermediate Foundation ballet and is also an associate with Scottish Ballet and Ballet West. She gained a strong score of 80.5% which ranked her 14th... Great work Iana! 


Dancer Zoe Young (15) competed with a jazz solo. Her lively and upbeat routine received great applause from the audience both in the theatre and at home! Zoe was awarded 81.8%, another strong score and ranked 17th in a large section.

Hip-hop and Commercial

We had two small group entries for commercial / hip-hop. The first was a trio of Hollie Crooks, Sara McDonald and Zoe Young performing 'Genesis'. They executed the routine brilliantly and gained 83.7% which ranked them 15th in another large section. The second group was a quartet, and the trio was joined by Rosie Collier to perform 'Sweet Venom'. Again, they gave a brilliant performance and were awarded 85.2% and also ranked 15th in their category. Both routines were choreographed by CSBS teacher Kristina who joined the team for the trip.

You can see view a small gallery of the girls at the event on our CSBS Facebook page or view a few pre-event pictures of the team.

Many thanks to everyone who supported the girls in their fundraising to take part in the competition. It has been a wonderful experience!  Congratulations too to the other schools and dancers representing Team Scotland, including Starshine dancer Nina Diambrosio who joined the Larbert High School team for hip-hop. Team Scotland gave a strong performance on the world stage and also brought home a number of medals!
