Dancing and maths add up for Erin
ERIN Longhurst travelled from Inverell to Grafton to strut her stuff on stage at the City of Grafton Eisteddfod.
The 16-year-old has been dancing for six years, and fell into it by accident.
“My sister was going to start, so I thought I would too,” she said.
“Most people copy their older sister with stuff like dancing and sport, I copied my younger one,” Erin said.
She does almost every style, practising contemporary, jazz, modern, ballet and tap.
She trains two days a week, for three hours each.
“I also practise a fair bit at home,” she said.
It is not all dancing. Erin also manages to make time for her school work.
“I really like maths at the moment,” she said.
Liking maths is a good thing at the moment for Erin as she is currently studying extension one maths as a part of her Higher School Certificate courses.
