Bounceback is a group of 16 young dancers which rehearses at Déda in Derby, while Derbyshire Youth Dance Company is a group of 14 young people based in Chesterfield (pictured above).

Both were among 20 youth dance groups from across the UK which performed original choreographed pieces to a London audience and a judging panel of dance professionals.

They are now part of the final six groups that will perform at U.Dance 2015, which will be held in Plymouth in July.

The annual event celebrates and showcases the best youth dance work from across the country, led by Youth Dance England.
