A Kettering dance school is celebrating after qualifying for the finals of a national competition.

S&D School of Dance, based on Bath Road, qualified from the International Dance Teachers’ Association regional heats, held in the West Midlands earlier this month.

The ballroom dancing school picked up nine first places at the qualifier, making them all-Midland IDTA medallist of the year.

Principal Debbie Tranter said she was ecstatic with S&D’s result at the Midland qualifiers.

She said: “All of our pupils qualified for the finals by making the semi-final or better and are looking forward to competing in the finals.”

The final will be held at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool on April 13 and 14.
