Students dance up a storm
THE 29th Lockyer District Dancing Festival has come to an end with the event marked as one of the most successful years to date.
Gatton Danceforce Principal, Sarah Cox, said competitors came from all over Queensland.
“They came from the Gold Coast and from Bundaberg and from everywhere really,” she said.
“Every year it just seems to get bigger and better.
“My girls did really well and we placed really well.”
She said she was proud of all her dancers.
“They just love to get up there and do some dancing,” she said
“They are just performers and they love it.
“They don't care if they get a place, they just want to dance.”
Dancers aged three and over competed in a range of categories including up-tempo modern dance, classical ballet and tap.
“Most of my girls competed in at least more than one category.”
The festival ran during the end of last month at the Gatton Shire Hall in North Street.
Gatton Danceforce came away from the festival with 12 first places, 10 second places, four thirds and six highly commended recipients.
