Love of dance always shines with our Competition students

Our lovely competition students have now finished comps for 2023 - but posting some pics from the last 3 competitions they have participated in. Coastal Comps - TFDA Sept comps - Hawera comps. I would just like to say 'well done' to all our wonderful students whose love of dance shines onstage - along with their support of each other and fellow competitors backstage. Watching our students grow in confidence and self esteem - as well as improving technical dance skills is something we are very proud of as their dance teachers.


Some special mentions:

Amelie 1st in Own Choreography, Entertainment Section

Jessica, Amelie, Arabella, Catriona, Briar awarded 'Special Awards/Scholarships' at TFDA comps

Championship placings achieved by Jessica, Briar, Arabella over the 3 competitions

Jessica being awarded 'Competitor who displays artistry in ballet' at Coastal comps by the adjudicator

Arabella and Jessica awarded 'Most Authentic character costumes' by adjudicators at TFDA and Hawera


A highlight (and a fabulous way to finish off a year of dance comps) was being part of the 100 years Celebration held by Hawera Competitions. Jessica and Briar were thrilled to be asked to part of the Celebration Gala - an absolute honour for them and lovely to have our studio represented after over 30 years involvement with the Hawera Competitions Society.


Finally would like to finish with acknowledging Anneka - who performed for the last time at Hawera comps as she will be leaving for university next year. Its been so wonderful watching her grow as a performer on stage over the years and her absolute love of dance has always shone onstage. We are very proud of her achievements - she is a wonderful role model for our younger students
