AFTER throwing some shapes at the biggest celebration of break-dancing culture in the Highlands, a Caithness group was hailed as one of the stars of the show in Inverness.
Rush Dance were given a standing ovation after their performance on Tuesday night (May 22) at Breakin’ Convention 2012 in Eden Court.
The young dancers were invited along to take part after impressing organisers who saw video footage of them in action.
Crew instructor Willie Miller said that it was the biggest achievement of the group to date and that everyone was still buzzing from the experience.
“We definitely rose to the challenge and I’m so proud of the effort that everyone put in,” he said. “Everyone was a little bit nervous about appearing on stage but that disappeared quite quickly.
“We were the only crew from the Highlands taking part and after we finished our performance the crowd erupted, which was a great feeling for everyone.
“It’s the biggest event that we have taken part in so far but we hope there will be more to come.”
Breakin’ Convention 2012 took place in the Highlands for the first time and included performances from world-renowned break dancers such as The Flyin Jalapenos, Clash 66 and current world champions Vagabond Crew.
