Year 13 Federation Sixth Form student Levanna, is gaining attention across the globe for a string of Northern Soul dancing videos posted on YouTube.
She posted her first video in September this year, shot during a trip to Russia. Since then she has posted a number of dancing clips with various South west backdrops including Clifton Suspension Bridge, Glastonbury Tor, and Staple Hill High Street.
The latest video, titled “Northern Soul Girl Dances to HAPPY – Pharrell vs Northern Soul” has received over 420,000 views and has gained plenty of attention from the media including a mention on American radio!
Levanna, who is currently taking her final year of A-levels, first discovered the Northern Soul genre while going through her mum’s record collection. We look forward to seeing her next videos and where it takes her in the future.
Best of luck!
