US beck­ons for dancers

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

A ju­nior Kar­ratha dance crew is headed to Hol­ly­wood to strut their stuff on the big stage in July and frozen yo­ghurt is help­ing them to get there.

The Dance FX crew has 22 stu­dents fly­ing to Los An­ge­les to per­form at Dis­ney­land and Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios.

Dance FX stu­dio owner Jess Ke­un­ing said the girls would have the chance to par­tic­i­pate in a main street pa­rade with all the Dis­ney char­ac­ters in front of more than 4500 spectators.

“The stu­dents also have some fan­tas­tic work­shop op­por­tu­ni­ties at Dis­ney Per­form­ing Arts, Mil­len­nium Dance Com­plex and Abby Lee’s new LA stu­dio, which all dancers are look­ing for­ward to,” she said.

“The stu­dents will start re­hears­ing ev­ery week in Term 1, learn­ing 30 min­utes of con­tin­u­ous chore­og­ra­phy.

“Re­hearsals will in­crease in Term 2 to en­able the stu­dents to pol­ish and per­fect their rou­tine.”

It is the se­cond time Dance FX has made the trip, hav­ing first headed over in April, 2013.

Yo Get It owner Jess Buck­ley said she was ex­cited to sup­port this trip of a life­time.

“It’s fan­tas­tic that such op­portu- ni­ties are avail­able to our young lo­cal tal­ent and that as a lo­cal busi­ness we are able to get be­hind th­ese ini­tia­tives,” she said.

“Each month we will be sup­port­ing a new lo­cal char­ity, with $1 from ev­ery Froyo sold on Tues­days be­ing do­nated to­ward that cause.”

Ms Buck­ley said char­i­ties or groups want­ing to raise funds could visit yo­ for more in­for­ma­tion.
