The news comes off the back of Frenzy’s recent success, achieving second place at the European Championships in Germany in May.

Switch dancers are aged between six and 10, while Frenzy team members range from age 10 to 15, and feature Olney children William Totton, 8, Grace and Isabelle Slaughter, 9 and 6, Annabelle Winter, 9, Evie Carter, 10 and Jenna Gibson, 10.

Dancevybz founder Stephanie Massey said: “Our dancers are now competing and winning at the highest level, on the world stage, and I couldn’t be prouder.

“Thanks to their hard work and the commitment and dedication of our teachers, we are now not just Bedfordshire’s premier street dance school but also one of the UK’s most successful. I’m really excited for what the future holds.”
