• 2017 1st place and overall Auckland Regional Champions at Dance
Our dream was always to represent NZ on the world wide stage at
the Hip Hop International competition. Our crew of 10 dancers is

Todd Williamson helping us to achieve our dancing dream.
Many of our dance school families and friends have supported us.
Now we need extra help to get us to this competition.
While competing in Phoenix, there will be 450 of the world's

50 countries who will be at this championship. It is an amazing

teachers to Phoenix. This includes accommodation, flights, training
venue, rental van transportation, entry fees and costumes.

could, we would dance all day, every day! We are extremely excited
to show our families, friends and the rest of the world what we are
capable of. We'd love to show you too. We appreciate any help you
