#CultureWednesfield! – Well Done JSDA You Have Smashed It Again!

Wednesfield is a district of Wolverhampton that is rich in sporting clubs and sporting achievement, and Wednesfield sometimes gets overlooked as to what it is achieving in that other great world of leisure activity.

Dance and culture is a really strong sector here in Wednesfield!

Very little get written in the popular press about how good our Dance Schools are here in Wednesfield. Or what kind of job they do in teaching young people to express their selves take exercise and enjoy themselves in the music that flows with the dance.

I am pleased to say that we regularly see scores of parents and their children getting ready for the displays and the rehearsal that go with the dance.

One of the best is the JSDA School who have been dancing in Blackpool over this weekend. In the “That’s Showbiz” Semi Finals.

Here is what JSDA say about themselves following their successful dance routines on the big stage……

Julie Scrivens the owner and Dance Coach states – “So so proud two days at semi-finals amazing standard! 12 trophies! 
And our Nellies Didi Kidz and adults -Run the World – both qualified for the finals and dance at Liverpool Echo in March! “

Didi Kidz 3rd place classic – Nellie
Didi Kidz 2nd place open –  Space Unicorn
Didi Kidz 5th place Overall – Nellie Q
Mini Kidz 3rd place classic -Thousand Years
Mini Kidz 3rd place open -Shake it off

Now for me and Mary and Councillor Rita Potter, as your local Councillors we think that this is fantastic! We want to say that we are equally as proud of you all.
