UNION Jacks and Beetlejuice Stripes were worn by hundreds of hopeful dancers at The Summer South Coast Street Dance Championships.

Eleven schools from across H a m p s h i re and beyond battled it out at The Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth, at the Street Dance International Competition to win trophies and move up in the ranks to Championship standard.

Judged by performers from the Olympics opening ceremony, Britain’s Got Talent and featured dancers for Adidas, the talent had to be sky high to score the best prizes.

There were competitions in solos, groups, pairs, teams and break dance.

Competing schools included Belinda’s Dance Academy from Shirley , Street Beatz from Sholing , Bust-A-Groove from Nursling and REDs from Totton .
