The TDP Dance Companies have started Term 1 with great energy and enthusiasm in their study of Dance. Students meet at 7:30 am across Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and are working on developing technique, skills and stamina specific to the dance styles of Jazz, Hip-Hop and JFH. It has been fantastic to see the Dance students working under the tutelage of Marist Sisters’ alumni as their tutors – Olivia Enright, Esther Monck and Ashleigh McCurtayne.
Congratulations to Year 11 Dance student Lucy Williamson for her outstanding achievements in the Australian Dance Championships held in Bendigo, Victoria. Lucy and her Dance partner Felix came 3rd in the Under 21 Division, representing NSW.
Further congratulations to Amelia Marteau in Year 7, who represented the state in the areas of both Jazz and Tap at the ATOD Australasian Scholarships National Competition. Amelia received 3rd place for her solo tap performance, a fantastic achievement.
Lucy and Amelia model the dedication it takes to craft and shape one’s gifts through hard work and dedication to their selected Dance style. We wish them the very best in their ongoing study of Dance, both within the MSCW community and beyond.
Ms Christina O’Neill, Dance Teacher
