Dundee kids win £1000 after dance video goes viral

A Dundee street dance group has become a YouTube sensation and won £1000 after making a video to showcase their neighbourhood.

Children and young people from the Launch Pad Studio filmed themselves dancing at various locations in Charleston for an online competition called Cut it Up Video Battle.

The clip, which shows the dancers in their studio, in the street and in front of buildings in the area, has had more than 5000 views in just over a month.

Laura Morrison, owner of Launch Pad Studio, said: “We are a Charleston-based group and we only opened in October, in the former Rowantree Pub, which we renovated.

“The kids noticed this online competition and decided to enter.

“The idea was to put together a concept video, something cool about what we do and the area we’re in.

“It was decided that the kids would dance around Charleston. All the parents, friends and people we knew shared the video and the kids think it’s great – they think they’re famous!

“They were absolutely delighted to win, £1000 feels like a billion to them.

“We will use the money towards a three-day trip to London for a dance convention.”
