Nine students from Turning Point Dance will be travelling to Wellington, New Zealand to compete in the world renowned and prestigious Alana Haines Australasian Awards in April.
Ranging from 11 years to 15 years of age, these dedicated students are busy preparing classical variations and contemporary solos at our Thebarton studios to perform at the awards and all students will need to be in tip top condition for a presentation of an onstage classical class for their division.
