Worthing Xoe-B singer-songwriter named national Latin dance champion

Zoe-Beth Hobbs, 21, has lived in Broadwater since she was a year old and after working for the NHS she is now a musician, songwriter and educator, under the stage name Xoe-B.

Zoe-Beth said, “I am extremely proud of this achievement. Competing regionally for a place in the national final is something every young ballroom dancer and Latin dancer strives to achieve, but dreaming of winning the national final is quite another thing altogether.

“I’m still in shock that I was able to do this, especially in Latin because, in general, I’m stronger in the ballroom.
