The Bedford College Group Director of the Arts Toby Clark said: “We are very proud of Tasharne’s achievement and it’s great to see student success already arising from this exciting new collaboration between the college group and the Phoenix Starr Academy of Dance.

“The college group is already well known for success in its Performing Arts courses and it’s great to be adding a specialist dance provider to our provision at the Bedford campus.”

Originally Tasharne competed at the Hip Hop Unite Manchester heats. He came first in his category against numerous other experienced dancers.

Since lockdown, Hip Hop Unite organised the competitions online where dancers were required to film themselves and post their submission onto their Social Media platforms. Tasharne came first again in his category and went on to represent the UK in the Hip Hop Unite World Championships.

Another Phoenix Starr student Nadia Wedderburn also came third in her category in the heats.
