Get Embers To The Summit

Salford young dancers hoping to head west in 2023
August 1, 2022

A TALENTED group of Salford based youngsters are hoping to make their dancing dreams come true  after beating stiff opposition to qualify to compete in the United States.

The Red Hot Embers, all aged between five and seven, lifted the laurels in the Tiny Pom dance category at June’s Jamfest, held in Liverpool, where they were up against some of Europe’s best dancers.

The group is made up of: Blythe Partington, aged 5; Millie Quirk, 5; Nyah Dalli, 5; Scarlett Davies, 5; Amelie Tudor, 6; Erin Eve Smith,6; Nattaya Boyle, 6; Amber Frame, 7; Luna-Rose Glynn, 7; and Olivia Kennedy,7.

After the group’s win, its coach and choreographer, Natasha Wilde, said she was still in shock at the group’s success: “We were absolutely delighted to qualify for the USA trip

“These talented little ladies have shown so much resilience during the pandemic and have workedtirelessly since returning to the studio to ensure they are the best they canbe. They have grown a lovely team bond and are so committed.” 

To be crowned the Grand Champions the team had to perform four different dance styles namely pom, jazz, hip-hop and lyrical.

Natasha adds: “I am ecstatic that I will have the opportunity to take them over to the US to show the world how fantastic they are. I couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of them.

“Although the next battle we face is raising funds to cover the expensive competition and travel costs for the whole team, which we are hoping to do through a gofundme page, to raise a minimum of £5,000 to cover travel and accommodation.”
