First Impressions scoop the Boroughs United 2013 urban talent show

A youth dance troupe from Wembley claimed the top spot in a prestigious urban talent contest.

First Impressions beat off fierce competition from 33 other acts to be crowned the winner of the Boroughs United 2013 urban talent show.

The group, who are based at the Chalkhill Community Centre in Chalkhill Road, are formed of youngsters aged between eight and 14.

The win was the second triumph for the 13-strong troupe in one week, as they also came first in the Brent Dance Factor competition held at the Roundwood Youth Centre in Longstone Avenue, Harlesden, last week.
