Leicester act Base have been crowned official winners of Midlands Best Dance Crew 2013. Second place went to Nuvo III, of Birmingham, and third to Ruby Dolls from Leicester. This is the first time the urban dance competition has been staged in Leicester.

 

Ten dance crews performed at Curve Theatre on 16 November 2013, in the sold-out event run by 2Funky Arts.

Dancers performed for a panel of professional judges and were scored on a range of categories, including synchronicity, musicality and originality.

 

The event was a celebration of all the exceptional dance crews across the region, with hip hop and street dance featuring high on the agenda. As well as the main competition, there was a cash prize for the best dancer in the audience.
