Young dancers stepping it up
YEAR 10 student Meghan Philpoot is off to Japan in July for the ballroom dancing WDSF World Youth Standard Championship.
The 15-year-old said she was excited to be eligible for the international competition.
“Last year I could have competed in the Ukraine, but I was too young,” she said.
“I’ve been dancing since I was seven years old.
“I love being able to express myself through movement.”
Meghan teamed up with her dance partner Riley Moriarty (16) early last year.
The duo have a busy program on the Australian Dancesport scene, competing in Standard, Latin and New Vogue.
Riley and Meghan will perform at a fundraising event at Humphrey’s Dance Studio in Victoria Park on Saturday, May 21. For details visit www.facebook. com/RileyandMeghan or call 0422 371 526.
