Tay­lor kept on her toes to win cul­tural award

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

A GREAT love of dance has kept Kirsty Tay­lor on her toes this year, and her ded­i­ca­tion to the sport is what awarded her the Ju­nior Cul­tural Award at Gayn­dah’s Aus­tralia Day cer­e­mony at the week­end.

North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil­lor John Zahl said a num­ber of fac­tors played into Tay­lor tak­ing the ti­tle.

“Achiev­ing 100 per cent in acro­bat­ics arts train­ing, at­tend­ing Queens­land Bal­let Women’s Week, at­tend­ing work ex­pe­ri­ence with Queens­land Bal­let phys­io­ther­a­pists, com­pet­ing with a group at Kin­garoy Dance Eisteddfod, and per­form­ing at lo­cal events,” he said.

“She’s a self­less dance stu­dent who goes out of her way to make oth­ers feel in­cluded and has worked hard this year to achieve her goals.”

Tay­lor was hum­bled by the award and thanked those in the com­mu­nity who sup­ported her, say­ing she couldn’t have been as in­volved in the sport with­out them.

“Thank you to who­ever nom­i­nated me, I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate it and I wasn’t ex­pect­ing it at all,” she said.
