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.
