Record crowd at Lion King
RECORD numbers packed Nanango State High School to see The La Crème Dance Academy’s rendition of the Lion King.
More than 1500 people attended the dance concerts on Friday and Saturday night, a record for the dance academy, and co-director Bec Stone was more than pleased with the result.
“We are overwhelmed with the support we have received, and we are so proud of all of our dancers,” she said.
“They performed such an enjoyable and entertaining performance over the two nights.”
Co-director Ashleigh Mangan was also very proud of the students’ energy.
“The dancers’ dedication saw them shine on stage,” she said.
Next year, La Crème’s Kingaroy studio will be expanding to cater for high school-aged students, and will also add tap classes and further exam and performance opportunities to what is already on offer.
In 2019, La Crème will be also offering the South Burnett’s first aerial class, teaching acrobatics class performed on silks and hoops mid-air.
La Crème Dance Academy directors said there had already been a high demand for classes after the successful concerts.
