Dancing into the Finals – Liverpool The Venue for JSDA!

I am proud to say that Wednesfield has been in the news a great deal recently-
Today is no different because the JSDA (Julie Sarah’s Dance Academy) based in Wednesfield, returned from a week end in Blackpool having wowed judges with a talented bunch of dancers. JSDA have been assembling talented dancers of all ages for years.

Last week end they went to the Opera House in Blackpool with 62 students in total. They returned to Wednesfield after the competition with 33 students having qualified for the finals in Liverpool at the Echo Arena . How about that for an achievement!

Julie tells me that “Both these groups are through to the finals at the Echo Arena in March the first group song and dance sounds amazing! Our teams brought back eight trophies ‘Naughty’ won adjudicators choice of the whole competition!

Full results;- Didi kidz 3rd place; hip for Hair Up Mini kidz 3rd place; open Girlfriend Kidz 3rd place; open Naughty Adult 2nd place; modern Show me Adult 2nd overall; Show me Adult 1st place; modern Diamonds Adult second overall; Diamonds Adjudicators choice award (favourite dance of the day!) Naughty;

All this means that there are three routine through to finals at Echo Arena in Liverpool to dance in front of 3000 people!!

Now I am sure that residents of Wednesfield will tell me that this is a great story – which I think adds a little bit of cultural magic to the Wednesfield scene, of great history, sport, business and choice living.

It goes without saying that Wednesfield North Councillors wish Julie and her bunch of talented dancers at the Julie Sarah Dance Academy the very best of ‘British Luck’ in the finals!
