DANCERS have topped off a year in the spotlight starring in an international pop video.

After dancing at the Illuminations Switch On the troupe from Urban Dance Project were invited to perform alongside Swedish artist Nina Kray in her latest video.

The group, based at Body Senze Gym in Bispham, have also featured in singer Kara Lee’s music video after being her backing dancers at the Switch On in August.

Michelle Ramsey, founder of Urban Dance Project, said: “It was amazing, it’s a really high-energy, uplifting dance track. We were dancing and there was a big crowd of extras too, it was like a big party.”

The eight street dancers were fittingly chosen to work on dance track Like A Night Out in Vegas with Nina Kray in Uber on Breck Road, Poulton, in December.

Ms Ramsey added: “It’s not all as glamorous as you’d think, you work long days but the sets were amazing.

“For a lot of dancers it was the first time they’d done anything like that.

“It’s nice to get people in Blackpool these sort of gigs, it’s getting our stamp of Blackpool dancers.”

The dance instructor said she now hopes to land her troupe more roles, having already seen protégés win at the World Street Dance Championships over the summer.
