Clever dancing feat
By EMMA CORNFORD
TOP-QUALITY dancing by 20 Grafton dancers in Lismore last Sunday secured a swag of victories for the troupe at the Australian Showcase regional finals.
The dancers, from Studio 1, took out all divisions of the Elite Title awards and the outstanding choreography award.
Katie Hirst also secured a place in the finals of Dancer of the Year, which places her in the running for a trip to the US to represent Australia.
Academy director Miss Gail said all the dancers had done an 'excellent job'.
"You never really know how they're going to do because there are three different judges; one may love your work and another may not," she said.
"But we pretty much scooped the pool. The kids danced really, really well and Katie danced exceptionally well."
