MONTROSE street dance crew Turbulance have collected a second national trophy in their six-month career following a recent competition in Fife.

The all-girl group started out in winning form when they took top spot at Montrose Academy’s annual talent show, for which they formed specifically in December.

Buoyed by their success, the girls, aged between 13 and 16, decided to try their luck against wider competition and entered the Maximum Dance Scottish streetdance competition, which was held in Dundee in March.

Up against dance crews from across the country, the girls were placed second in the Under-18 Newcomers’ category. They also had two successful duet groups.

At the Unity Street Dance Competition, held in Glenrothes on Sunday, June 17, the girls were also placed second overall, while duets Karlynn Canale and Eden Brown, and Lucy Haddock and Carmen Marr were also placed first in their categories.

Karlynn also got her solo dancing career off to a flying start with a second place in her class.

Devon Simpson, who has choreographed all of the troupe’s routines said the girls, who also performed at this year’s Mo Fest, are now hoping to go on to bigger and better things.

She said: “We’ll be going to the World Championships in Blackpool in August. It’s a bit of a long shot but it’s all experience.”
