We caught up with this year’s MOVE IT & Capezio Championship winners Kingston University Dance Society– Contemporary team! The team is taught by the amazing Gioa Antonucci and has become unbeatable throughout the year competing in several university competitions!
In the first round the team caught the judge’s eyes when they performed their piece B.I.A – they were told by the judges ‘they had a good chance at winning’.
When getting through to the finals Kingston then performed a different piece called Charge in which they wowed the audience and the judges again! Their strong performances lead them to be crowned the winners of MOVE IT & Capezio Championships landing themselves a prize winning of £1000 and the chance to tour with BGT’s Dance Troupe Flawless!
