Young dancers step­ping it up

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

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.
