Kids: Melissa’s first dance competition

We’re very proud of Melissa (6) who completed her first dance competition at the Dance Domain studio, in Montague Gardens, on Saturday night. Even though she danced at the same time as other students older than her and in a higher level, she was graded according to her level and age-group.

Melissa performed the following Latin/Ballroom dances (Bronze Level 1) with her instructor, Andre:

  • Jazz
  • Tango
  • Box Rumba
  • Foxtrot
  • Boogie
  • Cha-Cha
  • Loop-Dans (Walk-dance)

Since there were a lot of students the results could take up to 3 weeks before we get them. But in the meantime, why don’t you take a look at how she danced by using the video link below.
