Vibez Danceworks, World Street Dance Championships

Background

Based in Long Eaton, Vibez is one of the largest dance and performing arts schools in Derbyshire and the Midlands, with over 500 pupils. Since 2012, Vibez street dancing teams have entered and qualified for the UDO World Street Dance Championships, even achieving top 10 world status, and hope to replicate their success again this year.

How did the Community Fund help?

Vibez, which has been running for over 10 years, received £300 which will be used to send up to 30 of their pupils to the United Dance Organisation (UDO) World Street Dance Championships in August.

Claire Williamson, who owns Vibez, said: "I’m really grateful to the University of Derby for the £300 cheque, which will help the Vibez dancers travel to Glasgow for the UDO World Street Dance Championships.

"This is the biggest street dance competition that we enter and the kids work fiercely all year to qualify at regional events across the UK, so it’s a massive thank you to Derby for supporting Vibez and the dancers to fulfil their dreams."
