Roar with Katy or dance by herself?

Which would you choose... Katy Perry or a chance to dance?

LITTLE Lily Teubler has a dilemma.

The nine-year-old Burnside State School student has a big decision to make: go "roar" at her favourite singer Katy Perry's concert, or perform in her own ballet performance. Lily is hoping she can do both.

The Nambour girl is looking for other Katy Perry fans to have a heart and swap concert tickets with her. Changing from the Friday, November 28, to the Sunday, November 30, concert will enable her to get to both events.

The CDs, posters, books and a memory bank of all the lyrics - Lily is a huge Katy Perry fan.

"I love her so much," Lily said.

Her mother Bec Mugridge said her little girl was devastated to learn both the pop concert and ballet event were on the same Friday night.

Lily has never been to a concert before and with vision problems (ocular albinism, short-sightedness and astigmatism), the relief of obtaining upper-level seats meant everyone was doubly excited for her.

"We saw Katy Perry was coming and we just had to get the tickets," Ms Mugridge said. "She is so mad on Katy Perry. She's been excited for weeks and weeks and when we got the notice about the (ballet) concert date, we ran home to check the ticket date on the fridge and realised it was the same night.

"It's a big decision for her and one we don't want her to have to make, so we hope there is someone out there who can swap."

In the meantime, Lily will continue preparing for her recital at Sunshine Dance Centre at Nambour.

"She doesn't want to miss the dance concert either," Ms Mugridge said.

"She's been practising for five hours every week leading up to it and just loves singing and dancing, so it's hard."
