Pilbara News - - Sport - Ali­cia Per­era

A Kar­ratha dance school has won a spate of awards at a na­tional dance com­pe­ti­tion, tak­ing home more than 26 tro­phies, in­clud­ing over­all best stu­dio.

Syn­ergy Dance Com­pany com­peted in the Dance Kids’ Artis­tic Revue event in Perth on Oc­to­ber 17, along with 15 other schools.

They took out first place in all 26 dance per­for­mances they com­peted in and were the most-awarded dance stu­dio in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Sev­eral lucky stu­dents from the com­pany also won schol­ar­ships or in­vi­ta­tions to per­form in New York, LA and Las Ve­gas.

The com­pany, which is in its sec­ond year, has gone from strength to strength.

The revue is the sec­ond com­pe­ti­tion it has en­tered and founder and teacher Jessie Krieg is de­lighted with the suc­cess.

“We’ve had incredible ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment from the team mem­bers and par­ents and I guess it’s all very well-de­served,” she said.

The school in a one-woman ef­fort by Ms Krieg, who uses her pro­fes­sional dance back­ground to teach classes in all types of dance.

Of her stu­dents, the youngest of whom is only three years old, Ms Krieg said she “couldn’t be prouder”.
