A troupe of dancers from Kelston in West Auckland has scored an international triumph.
Waatea News reports the Sweet and Sour Dance Crew's slick routines and choreography won it the hip hop world championships in Los Angeles.
Stephanie Harawira from the Ezekiel Trust says months of extreme dedication and practice paid off for them.
The trust raised funds for the trip. It says Sweet and Sour will get a huge powhiri when they fly back into Auckland early next Wednesday.
