Another successful audition for local dancer Abbey

Abbey Rowland-Jones from Dream Dance Academy attended her first Rural Dance Development Program workshop last weekend after successfully auditioning in February.

Jamie Kaye developed the program to give young aspiring dancers in the Central West the chance to be taught by some of the best in the industry. 

It allows students access to top industry teachers in a personal environment with the hope of developing industry contacts and furthering the dance careers of talented young dancers living west of the mountains.

The Junior program runs for four and half hours once a month and will be held at various studios around Bathurst, Orange and Forbes.

The March workshop saw renowned teachers Natasha Crane and Neale Whittaker work with students in Lyrical, Jazz, Hip-Hop and Contemporary.

Abbey thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and was chosen by Natasha and Neale to be the recipient of a Bloch gift voucher for her work ethic and focus throughout the afternoon.
