Dance studio?s divas will astound
FROM the classic to the contemporary, the professional to the beginner, Coffs Coast residents will get a glimpse of local talent, and future stars, when Woolgoolga Dance Studio presents its end-of-year concert tomorrow.
Titled 'Divas of Dance', concertgoers can expect a fun and vibrant event with inspiration drawn from dancing divas such as Kylie and Madonna. The concert will also see three of the studio's most talented students farewell the region.
Hayley Farmer, Chris Jhureea and Sky Bailey will perform in two separate concerts ? juniors and seniors ? showcasing many different styles including hop hop, contemporary, tap and break before they make the move to Brisbane next year to study performing arts full-time.
Both Hayley and Chris will study at DLDC (Davidia Lind Dance Centre), while Sky has accepted a position at the Australian Dance Performance Institute.
Teacher and studio owner Rebecca Ross is ecstatic for her students.
"They all show potential and share a love of performing. They will have to work extremely hard, but will have the time of their lives," she said.
However, their dream comes at a very expensive cost with each needing to raise between $7000 and $10,000 to cover their study.
As well as busking, they are calling for any business or organisation who can help to call Jude on 6649 1038, and will hold a fundraiser concert at the Plantation Hotel on December 13 at 9pm, featuring students from the studio. Entry is $5.
n Woolgoolga Dance Studio will present 'Divas of Dance' tomorrow at the Woolgoolga High School hall, with juniors starting at 2pm and seniors at 7pm. Tickets, $15 adults and $10 concession, are available at the door. Contact 6654 0057.
