Pembrokeshire’s Hermon YFC were placed ruuners up, while Devon’s Cheriton and Tedburn YFC were third.


With the theme Tomorrow’s World to inspire them, eight teams performed two genres from ballroom dancing and two from Latin.


Supporting their fellow members were family and YFC clubs who cheered on during Sunday afternoon’s final competition, held in the Empress Ballroom.


Judging the competition were Carol May and Lewis Danson from the Carol May Dance Academy.


The teams were marked on a host of elements including posture, musicality, expression, footwork and technique.




The team comprised of Huw Williams, Owen Morris, Tom Bright, Rhys Jones, Lucy Bright, Jess Bright, Chloe Saunders and Chloe Evans.


Choreographed by fellow dance Lucy Bright, the group also sought help from online videos and a dance teacher in Telford.


How, who co-danced the Rumba, Jive, Quickstep and the Waltz, said: “It is unbelievable to win. We came third last year in commercial dance so to come back and win is a hell of an achievement.


“We want to say a huge thank you to Shropshire members who came to support us along with our Mayor who also came.”
