A businesswoman from St Albans is dancing with joy after her business won a competition run by Theo Paphitis.

The dragon chose Sue Wybrow’s dance club Popdance, as a ‘Small Business Sunday’ winner back in January.

Sue was then invited to meet Theo at the SBS winners’ event in Birmingham recently.

Theo’s Twitter competition asks small organisations to tweet at him and describe their business in one Tweet. Then, Theo chooses six lucky winners that are retweeted to his 404,000 followers.

Sue created Popdance, a club for people who want to learn dance routines to pop songs, in 2009. The club started out as one class a week, but now runs classes, events and parties all over the country, as well as in Greece, Australia, Dubai and America.

Sue said: “Theo’s determination for small businesses to succeed in this economy is very clear to see and the event enabled us to meet with other businesses and share our experiences as well as gain from Theo’s.”

She added: “It’s hard work but as I absolutely love what I do, it doesn’t feel like work and seeing our growth is a real boost to the whole team.”
