Dancers' hard work pays off
DANCERS at St Teresa's Catholic College had all the right moves at the recent Get The Beat Eisteddfod bringing home two trophies for their school.
Ten weeks of rehearsals paid off on April 5 when against strong competition these young dancers performed with skill, elegance and strength.
The troupe won first in the the High School Lyrical/Contemporary Small Group section for their emotional dance reflecting body image and self love for teenage women.
Dancers then took third in the highly contested High School Lyrical/Contemporary Large Group section against 10 other competitors.
"The girls range from Year 8 to 12 and are all very talented and committed dancers,” teacher Sarah McNamara said.
"They all pick up choreography quickly and are very strong at performing dance with emotion to communicate an intent.”
Schools from across the Sunshine Coast competed, with St Teresa's the only Noosa school in attendance.
St Teresa's will now prepare to take 40 dancers and six routines to the Sunshine Coast Dance Eisteddfod on May 10.
