Dancer Excels

Our congratulations to La Bella Carolan (Year 7) who has been selected to dance in London and Paris in 2018, as part of the Centre Stage Dance Studios Senior Dance Program. Even though she is dancing two levels higher than her age, La Bella was chosen to study to at 3 different dance schools in London:

  • Pineapple Studios – London. This will focus on hip hop, jazz and contemporary (5 days);
  • ‘The Palace’ – London. This will focuses primarily on contemporary, classical ballet (both Belle’s favourites, 5 days); and
  • London Studio Centre. This focuses on theatre and business studies, and within that, the focus is choreography, repertoire, history, contemporary, drama, jazz, musical theatre, pas de deux and singing (5 days).

We wish her all the best.
