Two of our Junior dancers, Hannah and Tahlia were given the opportunity to dance with the Melbourne City Ballet, in their December production of The Nutcracker!

We know it was a magical experience for the girls. It has been so exciting for our Studio D dancers to participate in professional ballets across Victoria! We hope there are many more performances to come!

Our Intermediate Performance Group’s special event for this year was to participate in the Australian all Star Cheerleading Federation Victorian State Championship.

The State Championship is a huge competition with about 5000 participants in Victoria alone. The girls had a blast at this competition and enjoyed attending a different style of competition. Their performances were beautiful and it was lovely to see the girls support the Studio D teachers who were also competing at the same event.
