MEMBERS of the Gordano School Dance Academy were crowned national champions at the Great British Dance-Off last month.

The Portishead dancers fought off stiff competition from 250 schools across the country to reach the finals.

Twenty-four regional winners then went head-to-head in a dance-off at Oxford’s New Theatre where Gordano came out on top by a clear 18 points ahead of the runners-up.

A spokesman for the dance academy said: “All the students involved were absolutely fantastic, giving a performance that wowed the judges and brought tears to the eyes of many audience members. We are all very proud of them.”
