City dance school wins first prize.
The Jordon School of Dance, in Bartley Green, beat hundreds of entries from around the country to claim top spot at the prestigious British Troupe Championships, in Wrexham.
Dance teacher Joanne May, who runs the school with her sister Donna, said: "We only went along for the experience.
"We never expected to win.
"The competition was so high that we were amazed when our names were called.
"We are really proud." The pounds 300 prize money is being used to fund a celebratory party for the winners this weekend.
The judges, which included former Brookside actor Dave Justin and Got To Dance finalist Nicolette Whitley, praised the originality of the lyrical gymnastics routine, which was danced to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.
