The ID CO dance crew, including Warkworth dance teacher Sheniya White, came fourth at the World Hip Hop Championships in Arizona last month.
The team competed in the Mega Crew Division, which won the NZ championship earlier this year.
“First in NZ and fourth in the world is an amazing feeling, especially as the calibre of the competition is always very high,” Sheniya says.
“The competition provided a great opportunity to see talent from around the world and how styles vary between countries.”
Sheniya says the main thing she learned from the competition was that a crew is only as good as its weakest member, so everyone has to make sure they perform to the best of their ability.
She hopes to return to the world championships next year.
