An 11-year-old dancing protégé was praised by a television personality after coming third in an international street dancing tournament in Poland.
TV presenter Eamonn Holmes sent his congratulations to Indianna Godfrey after she beat 99 other competitors to achieve the placing, after coming 24th at last year’s tournament.
Her mother, Jojo Godfrey said she was “over the moon” after encouraging her daughter to beat her place at last year’s International Dance Organisation street dance championships.
The pair travelled to Poland on Tuesday, June 13. Indianna competed on Thursday and they flew back on Friday.
Indianna, who trains at SW Dance school, has been dancing since she was five.
Following her daughter’s success, Jojo received a message from television personality and family friend Eamonn Holmes commending Indianna’s routine.
The discipline of street dance has become more prevalent with appearances on TV talent shows such as Britain’s Got Talent.
