Barclays Live - Manchester Result

Manchester dance group Precise Crew have been crowned winners of Barclays Live Manchester after wowing a panel of celebrity judges at Piccadilly Gardens and winning an online vote via the Barclays Live microsite.

Laura-Anne Gill (23), Mitch Clarke (20), Jake Harris (17), Yong Ro (23), Hannah Stokes (22), Jenny Goodare (25), Lou Parsons (24) and Kirsty Williamson (20) have won VIP tickets to see Brendan Cole in action and will be dancing all the way to the bank with a cheque for £1,000!

Precise Crew was formed two years ago by choreographer, Laura Anne Gill who has worked with such names as Alexandra Burke, JLS, Gwen Stefani, Kanye West, George Michael, Pink and Katy Perry. As well as winning Barclays Live Manchester, the troupe recently made it to the World Street Dance Championship Finals.

Precise Crew Choreographer, Laura-Anne Gill said:

“We are so happy to have won Barclays Live Manchester and want to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us! The voting was incredibly close between us and the Shockarellas as they’re super talented and we have huge respect for them.”

The finalists were chosen by a panel of judges including Strictly Come Dancing’s Brendan Cole, football legend Chris Kamara, Key 103’s Trevor Jordan and Helen Armstrong from Barclays.

Videos of the five finalists were then uploaded onto the Barclays Live website http://www.barclayslive.com/ where they faced a hotly contested public vote.

The Barclays Live competition celebrates continued investment in branches across the region.

In addition to attending the Barclays Live events you can also check out the Your Name in Dance tab on http://www.barclayslive.com/, a new interactive dance tool which allows you to produce a bespoke dance for your name.

Barclays Live teamed up with award winning street dancer BROOKE to develop the online tool which you can share with your friends via Facebook and Twitter, or can copy the link and send it by email.

Brendan Cole says “Congratulations to Precise Crew for winning the Barclays Live Manchester heat. Precise Crew have a huge amount of talent for such young dancers and definitely have a great future ahead of them.”
