Bal­le­rina drops into Kin­garoy

South Burnett Times - - LIFE - — Kirsten Can­ni­ford Kin­garoy Dance Academy

ON SATUR­DAY, Oc­to­ber 7, Kin­garoy Dance Academy had an amazing ex­pe­ri­ence, when Queens­land Bal­le­rina soloist, Teri Crilly came to Kin­garoy Dance Academy’s stu­dio to teach bal­let classes.

Around 35 stu­dents, some as young as two years old, took the class which in­cor­po­rated barre work, cen­tre work and learn­ing the Nutcracker solo from Queens­land Bal­let’s pro­duc­tion.

Stu­dents then had the op­por­tu­nity to ask Teri lots of ques­tions about her­self, the life of a bal­le­rina, how the com­pany pre­pares their pointe shoes, au­di­tion process and danc­ing tips.

KDA dancer, Kait­lyn Han­nessen said the fol­low­ing:

“It was a priv­i­lege to meet and be taught by Queens­land Bal­let dancer, Teri Crilly.

“She had the smile and en­ergy that im­me­di­ately en­cour­aged you to dance.

“I learnt so much from the ex­pe­ri­ence, and I’m ex­cited to be able to ap­ply her knowl­edge to my danc­ing.”
