Dance night pointes to success



BEHIND the tutus and graceful steps, ballet is hard work.

Tonight's the night when persistence pays off for students of the Murwillumbah School of Dance, when they take to the stage for their concert Dance Spectacular and Coppelia's Story.

Up to 150 students from the school have performed at the Murwillumbah Civic Centre this week, from three-year-olds to a group of women in their 40s.

Not that the performers are the only ones who've worked hard to bring the show together. A small army of sewing mums - Janelle Skennar, Olive Dodds, Carol Mudge, Robyn Free and Jane Johnson have pushed their sewing machines to the limit making intricate costumes.

Tickets are available at the door for the two-hour show which starts at 6.30pm - $12 for adults, $8 pension- ers and children.
