OUR GIRLS STAR ONCE AGAIN
IT WAS a case of deja vu for the Southern Star Academy of Dance in Dalby last week when it was crowned the winner of the cabaret section at Lockyer District Dance Festival.
This is the second consecutive year the dance studio has taken out the cabaret section at the festival.
The 12 dancers from the Dalby studio performed Cell Block Tango from the musical Chicago.
This was the same dance that won the dance school the cabaret title in 2016, however this year it had a different group of dancers.
Southern Star Academy of Dance owner Danielle Small said the dancers’ enthusiasm for the piece was the reason they achieved their success.
“It is an excellent piece – the dancers just loved performing it,” she said.
“Because they enjoy it, they put extra effort into the piece and that translates on stage.”
The victory was the highlight of the festival for the dance school, and Mrs Small said she was pleased with the efforts of her dancers.
“It is great we could have a different team to last year perform the same dance and continue our success,” she said.
“They have carried on the reputation of our school.”
The eisteddfod attracts quality dancers from across a large region to perform.
Victory in any section of the festival is a fine achievement for the Dalby studio.
WINNERS: The Southern Star Academy of Dance Cabaret team.
