Eccleshall YFC members pleased with the day

On Sunday, 7th February 2016, during the Staffordshire YFC Public Speaking Day, the Staffordshire YFC members also held a Ballroom Dancing Competition along with a Choir Competition.

The teams had to perform a Show Dance to open a show (like Strictly Come Dancing) with two Latin and two ballroom dance styles for between 3 – 5 minutes with at least 3 couples taking part. In true “Strictly” style, the judges were looking for musicality, technique, posture and timing amongst other elements.

The winning team was Eccleshall A YFC with Uttoxeter YFC in second place and then Eccleshall B YFC in third place. The judges commended all competitors for their efforts and gave very constructive feedback for the teams going forward to the West Midlands Area round being held in Staffordshire on 28th February.
