FIVE Barnsley College students won bronze representing their country at the International Dance Federation World Championships in Croatia.

Chloe Tingle, Ella Tingle, Lucy Frudd, Elisia McCaslin and Lucie Roberts - who perform for the Lauren McCaslin School of Theatre Dance - all represented the England dance team at the event.

They train ten hours a week to perfect their fitness, strength, flexibility and endurance.

Elisia said: “It felt amazing, I’m so proud of the whole England team.

“My auntie owns the dance school and I have been dancing there my whole life, so this achievement is extra special.”

Lucie came third in her jazz funk duet, sixth in jazz funk solo and first in the musical category.

She added: “I decided to get into dance age 11 after seeing how much my friends enjoyed it.

“It felt amazing to come third - everyone worked so hard, and it was so rewarding to see all our work pay off.”
