Dance students from St John’s Lutheran Primary School in Kingaroy were thrilled to be the sole team asked to perform at major conference held in Brisbane last Friday.
They were invited to showcase their Dance Fever skills at the Queensland Studies Authority Conference at the Brisbane Convention Centre … in front of about 2000 delegates.
The students were involved in two sessions of choreography with senior Dance Fever manager Alicia Nystrom prior to the event.
Their dances included hip hop, waltz and jive.
During Term 1 students attend weekly lessons that include dancing with partners, hip hop and also whole class dance routines.
It teaches children social interaction through the enjoyment of dance and also incorporates physical and co-ordination skills.
In early April every year the Year 4-7 team attend the Interschool Challenge held at Chandler, Brisbane, against other Dance Fever schools.
This year the 83-strong team achieved great results in the Waltz, Mambo and Showdance sections of the competition.
The team also won the Year 4 trophy, the Showdance (a tie) and came home as overall champions for the day.
This team will travel to Sydney to challenge NSW and Victoria in the Dance Fever State of Origin Challenge.
