THE Royal South Street Energetiks Dance Competition began on Wednesday evening with young dancers showcasing their best performances.
Yesterday, the 8 to under 10 year old competition was held covering a range of disciplines of dance.
Laura Griffiths, 9, from Carmel Amelia School of Dance has been
dancing for four years and came away from the classical event with first prize.
“I like classical dance the most because of the music and the movements,” Laura said.
Natalie Stutz came third in the classical event, and said it was also her favourite style of dance.
“Classical you can smile and it’s a challenge,” Natalie said.
More than 2000 entrants from 66 dance schools will participate in this year’s Energetiks Dance Competition.
Royal South Street marketing manager Emma Sbardella said there was about $18,000 in winnings from the competition.
“All the trophies have been hand-crafted at Sovereign Hill, and there is $11,000 in prize money,” Ms Sbardella said.
The Energetiks dance competitions will conclude on October 5.
