Dance troupes hit the stage!

Dance —

Our three Dance troupes took to the stage for the first competition of the year on 15 May holding their own against strong studio dance troupes.

All three troupes received highly commended awards with some great feedback from the adjudicator.

Jazz Troupe

The judge commented on the great song choice and enjoyable choreography with great onstage/off stage flow and good group work. She felt this piece had lots of potential.
