Jamie Meah, who attends Turves Green Boys School, has been honoured with the title of under 14’s National dance champion in two styles, after success in Blackpool with dancing partner Mia Mazzitelli.
The dancing duo thrilled the judges at the ‘Champions of Tomorrow’ tournament on the 7th of January, with their performances of the classically elegant Ballroom and the high tempo Latin routine.
They started dancing with one another in December 2015 and currently represent Great Britian in the Junior category – and with Jamie being from Northfield and Mia living in Manchester, being successful takes extra hard work and determination.
On becoming champion, Jamie said “Winning the double champions last Saturday was one of the best days of my life. Me and Mia have been working so very hard and I have had to sacrifice a lot of my free time but to stand on that 1st place podium made every minute of hard work, sweat and tears worth it.”
There is a well-known saying that ‘success breeds success’, and this is certainly the case for this immensely talented pair – who also became the City of Manchester Under 14 Champions in Ballroom and Latin last weekend (14th Jan).
It has been quite a start to 2017 for Jamie and Mia – something tells us that they may need to invest in a bigger trophy cabinet!
