Thank you to Narelle Bunt for keeping me informed on all the wonderful successes of Stepping Out kids at Forbes Eisteddfod during the last week. I loved hearing that tell tale beep beep and knowing good news was on its way. Great Work Girls! Stepping Out students who appeared at Forbes were Laura, Holly & Meg Keizer, Jade & Amber Bunt, Brandi McGuire, Melissa McDonald, Paris Burns. I hear they danced amazingly but more importantly had a fantastic time and were equally as fabulous off stage.
Holly Keizer was awarded the ENCOURAGEMENT TROPHY for 8 years & Under, her second such special award this year and received outstanding places in all of her divisions. Likewise, Laura & Meg put in personal best performances and mum Darienne was very proud of all their successes.
Other Major Award winners were Amber Bunt who was successful as a finalist in both the Classical and Jazz Scholarships and was awarded 3rd place in the OPEN Modern Championship. ( quite a feat considering she is only 13.)
Paris Burns enjoyed a very successful Eisteddfod winning the Open Ballet Championship, the Open Modern Championship, the MOST OUTSTANDING DANCER TROPHY and most excitingly, the BALLET SCHOLARSHIP. Paris is cashed up!
Great work everyone. As always, we are very proud of you regardless of your results. It's nice to win but a true winner is NICE! And you all are that and so much more. Bring on Term 3!
