First of all I would like to thank Katie Haines for organising the Awards and everyone else who is part of AHA Team. The Awards have provided me and many other dancers with an opportunity to showcase my talents on stage and also to attend a dance school to broaden my experiences.
For one week in January I attended the Brisbane City Youth Ballet Summer School. I took classes in Ballet and Contemporary. I enjoyed dancing the Pas de Trios.
Thank you very much to Janine McGrath, Riley Baldwin and Kate Sims, all very excellent teachers. The work we did was of a high standard and I really enjoyed it.
I would also like to thank my teachers at the Dance Education Centre, Debbie Gooch and Prue Gooch.
