WHY THIS MEANS SO MUCH TO US ?
It's incredibly exciting to be able to take the girls on what amounts to their first tour," said studio 'boss' Jo Rowan. To have our hip hop choreography selected for the Victorian Dance Festival is amazing.
14-year-old Georgia Smith says she is 'pumped' to show people what a small dance studio from rural NSW can produce.
15-year-old Storm Davidson can see the longer term benefits of participating in the festival.
"I see it as an opportunity to learn and to grow within the dance industry," she said.
20-year-old Alison Walker is keen to showcase the group's choreography.
"It's great to be able to dance in another state; this could be the first step towards even more exciting things in dance."
Likewise Ellen Rimmer is excited to perform in front of some of her dance idols.
All in all its a bucket list tick for a group of super hard working dancers that deserve to be recongized for all their hard work and dedication.
HOW THANKFUL WILL WE BE ?
There are no words that can adequately describe how thankful we will be for all and any donations, you will be making the dreams of 10 dancers come true, and promoting the philosophy that if you dedicate and focus yourself to work towards a goal you can most certainly achieve it , with a little help from your friends x
