ATOD National Championships
Congratulations to Maja Buvac (Year 9) and Winona Dufrier (Year 10) who travelled to Brisbane to compete in the Australian Teachers of Dancing (ATOD) Australasian Energetiks Scholarships. Both girls performed brilliantly and placed second in their chosen discipline.
The ATOD Australasian Energetiks Scholarships is a national dance championship consisting of four disciplines of dance: ballet, tap, jazz and hip-hop. To be eligible to compete you must first have placed top four in your state. The competition has two parts: Day one is a one hour class where all competitors partake in routines and technique exercises they have never seen before and Day 2 has competitors perform two rehearsed dance routines.
Both girls were invited to compete at nationals after placing third at state: Maja for tap in the junior division (12-14 Years) and Winona for hip-hop in the intermediate division (14-16 Years).
Maja and Winona each put on a brilliant performance and were both awarded second place!
The girls train incredibly hard at Dorothy Cowie School of Dance, in Croydon, and it is wonderful to see their efforts being rewarded.
