A TAP dancer from the town is part of a medal-winning team.

Teenager Isabella Izquierdo, from Wokingham, was part of the team that topped the medal table at the World Tap Championships.

The championships, held in Riesa, Germany, saw dancers from around the world representing their countries in a rigorous competition.

Tap Attack, the official UK tap dancing team, returned home from Germany with eight world titles.

Competing with just under 1,800 dancers from 19 countries, including the USA, Canada, and Australia, Tap Attack dancers put on a marvellous display to take home the gold.

The dancers are all aged between 10-20, and have to go through a tough audition stage before they were selected to represent the UK in Germany.
Isabella, 15, was part of the winning adult formation, defending the team’s title from 2016.

She also won silver with her partner, Astrid Tozer in the junior duo.

Tap Attack head coach Jo Scanlan said: “This was a nerve racking year, and this competition honestly sees some of the best tap dancers from around the world.

“Each year, the standard gets better and the teams get stronger. To achieve the exceptional results we did was truly an honour”.
