XS success at 2011 British Opens

Twelve teams, including representatives from China, Germany and the USA, came to Blackpool to contest the 2011 British Open Latin Formation Championship, making it the biggest British Open formation competition for over 20 years. Six teams were recalled to the final and XS Latin, after dancing a superb final, were pleased to finish in fourth place, making them the highest ranking European team in the competition.

Chinese teams filled the first three positions, with Guangzhou Arts School securing a comfortable victory. Forren School of Music, from Beijing, finished as runners up, while Beijing Dance Academy narrowly beat XS to the bronze medal position. Fever Latin Team, Preston, and Ystrad Fawr Latin Team filled the remaining final places.

The team and coaches would like to thank all of our supporters and our sponsors, Capezio.
