Dancers bound for US with a lit­tle help from friends

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

A GROUP of Bi­bra Lake dancers will be jet­set­ting to the US to per­form at pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions.

The Kerry Gough Gotta Dance school troupe aged seven to 14, who will be em­bark­ing on the 2020 trip to Cal­i­for­nia, will get to per­form in front of an in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence at Dis­ney­land, the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame and Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios.

On top of the per­for­mances, they will also march in the Dis­ney­land pa­rade, take part in dance work­shops and en­joy some sight­see­ing.

To help them get there, the dance school is hold­ing a fundraiser at Cock­burn Ice Arena, 5pm to 7pm, on May 25.

Kerry Gough Gotta Dance prin­ci­pal teacher Natasha Hodg­son said they had made the trip in 2016 and it had been such an ex­pe­ri­ence they wanted to do it again.

“We went on the ad­ven­ture of a life­time with our first group of dancers to per­form and en­joy the Dis­ney ex­pe­ri­ence and we just had to go again and give this amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence we had the first time to other fam­i­lies,” she said.

“Locals should at­tend be­cause it will be a fun night for a great cause; they will be sup­port­ing lo­cal fam­i­lies and dancers to ex­pe­ri­ence the trip of a life­time.”
