'The Box' Crowned Glasgow Champs!

Young dance troupe The Box has been crowned Barclays Live Glasgow Dance Champions following a hotly-contested online public vote.
Made up of 12 students from Dance Point Musical Theatre, The Box picked up over 50,000 votes on their journey to the crown, beating off intense competition from top acts across Glasgow.

Having overcome stiff opposition from acts such as Britain's Got Talent semi-finalist The Fusion and Storm to become Barclays Live Glasgow champs, the act will be dancing all the way to their nearest Barclays branch with a bumper £1,000 cheque.
Speaking afterwards, Robert Hamilton, choreographer for the Box, said: "The kids are absolutely ecstatic as it was such a great honour to take part in Barclays Live, let alone win it! We are all extremely grateful to everyone that voted as it means so much to the kids to win in their own hometown. We're going to spend the money on some much needed new equipment for the studio. The kids have been sharing gymnastic mats, but now they are all going to get their own one!"

The Barclays Live competition celebrates continued investment in branches across the country and will pull up at a host of regions in 2011. In addition to the events sweeping the nation, Barclays Live has also teamed up with StreetDance 3D star Brooke Milliner to create Your Name in Dance, an interactive dance tool showing a users name in choreographed dance form.
