Dancers de­liver at Kwinana fes­ti­val

Southern Telegraph - - News -

Four­teen-year-old Teah Can­ta­tore of Foot­work Dance Com­pany and 12-year-old Mikayla Wil­son of Si­cuso Dance Stu­dio won the out­stand­ing dancer and ju­nior out­stand­ing dancer awards re­spec­tively at the 25th an­nual 2015 Kwinana Dance Fes­ti­val.

The high­est mark of the fes­ti­val went to Dy­na­mite Dance’s 13and-un­der acro group’s Pi­rates piece, with a score of 98.

More than 1700 per­for­mances — in­clud­ing solo, duo-trio and group acts — fea­tur­ing stu­dents from 30 dance schools rounded out the fes­ti­val, which ran from Septem­ber 26 to Oc­to­ber 5 at Koor­liny Arts Cen­tre.

The fes­ti­val gave young dancers and the young at heart the chance to show­case their skills in a va­ri­ety of dance forms, in­clud­ing clas­si­cal, lyri­cal, tap, acro, hip-hop, con­tem­po­rary and slow mod­ern.

Gen­eral man­ager Kate McIn­tosh said this year’s fes­ti­val con­tin­ued its rep­u­ta­tion as a friendly com­pe­ti­tion.

“It was great to see that all in­volved en­joyed the spirit of the fes­ti­val and saw it not only as a com­pe­ti­tion, but as a chance to learn from a va­ri­ety of peo­ple,” she said.

Per­pet­ual tro­phies were awarded at a win­ners’ con­cert on Oc­to­ber 6.
