Evan O’Dwyer, Siarra Robles, Danielle Coronado and Serena Manhao earned a spot on national team among some of country's best dancers.

The Canadian National Dance Team includes four Surrey hip-hop dancers. The team is raising money for its trip to the worlds in Italy this October.

SURREY — Four Surrey hip-hop dancers have been chosen by the Canadian National Dance Team to represent Canada at the World Hip-Hop Championships in Italy.
