SPORT 4NRG has helped Hartsdown students Emma-Jayne Chadwick and Amelia Read, both 17, to boost their confidence and increase their physical fitness.
Best friends Emma-Jayne and Amelia joined Sport 4NRG streetdance classes four years ago and encourage students from their school to join the Sport 4NRG programme.
Emma-Jayne said: "I really enjoy coming to the streetdance classes.
"I wouldn't know what to do every Wednesday if I didn't come here, I would be bored.

"The classes are great fun and a good form of exercise."
The girls are trained as Sport 4NRG dance leaders which means they can go into primary schools and teach pupils streetdance. Emma-Jayne and Amelia have also performed in dance festivals around the district.
Amelia said: "It is great fun, I love it and it has helped me to become more confident.
"There is a real mix of ages, everyone is really friendly."
