Taylor kept on her toes to win cultural award
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.
