STREET dancer Mya Corbridge not only won her freestyle solo competition but, along with her team, won the team competition against older competitors.
Mya, 16, from Rising Bridge, is a student at Haslingden High School and attends the A Team Dance and Fitness in Accrington.
Along with other dancers from the A Team, Mya competed in the Soar Streetdance Festival in Bury.
She said: “In my category, for age 16 and under beginners’ freestyle solo, there were 11 entries and so they got everyone on the floor, dancing at the same time and then got the number down to six.
“Five of the six that were picked were friends of mine who also go to the A Team. When it came to the results, they read out 357 in second place and I knew that I had won.
“The judges select the music at random and I got an R&B track that I knew well so I knew how to interpret the lyrics.
“In the team event, it was the last time that one of our members Caitlin Flatley was going to be in the team because she is in Sixth Form at Haslingden High and is going to university.
“We were all determined to win for her; and we did.”
Mya has been dancing since she was eight, after her family returned from 11 months living in New Zealand.
She said: “This is the best result I have ever had and in the next competition I will be entered into the intermediate category.”
