DANCE GROUP FEAT
TOWNSVILLE’S Happy Feat dance group has had years of hard work validated by being shortlisted for a prestigious national dance award.
Happy Feat founder Leigh Caldwell was delighted when she received notice they had made it to the top four in the Outstanding Achievement in Community Dance category of the 2015 Australian Dance Awards.
She said it was gratifying to see the group nominated on merit and not solely for being a special needs dance group.
“If nothing else happens, we’ve won already because of the recognition, acceptance and inclusion,” Ms Caldwell said.
The dance troupe was nominated for their performance at the Special Olympics Asia Pacific games in Newcastle in November 2013 which was featured on a DVD.
