Dancers sizzle with style

THESE girls have style, class and amazing technique.

When the senior students from Beverley Prange Dance Centre hit the stage you simply can't take your eyes off them.

It's no wonder they were named most entertaining dance act at the Gladstone Eisteddfod last month.

The adjudicator commented that during the senior jazz group the girls were well groomed, had fantastic costumes, good, sound technique and a lot of personality.

“You all look terrific,” she wrote on her judge's notes.

“A very stylish and most enjoyable performance.”

The group also won the jazz group section with 85 points.

Dance teacher Madonna Murphy couldn't have been more proud of her students yesterday. She said the fact the students really enjoyed the dance translated to the stage.

“It definitely came across as enjoyable,” Ms Murphy said.

“They had a great time down there.”

Ms Murphy said her students did well in all their group performances, but to be named most entertaining dance act had really topped off their achievements.

Beverley Prange Dance Centre took 30 students to compete in the Gladstone Eisteddfod.

Briony Gray-Ganter also won the Judith Cooper perpetual trophy for highest marks in song and dance.

Jess Harris won three perpetual trophies, dancer with the most potential in classical ballet and contemporary and senior jazz championships.
