Mur’bah festival boasts beautiful ballet
COMBINING flow, strength and style is a hard ask, and that is before you are asked to pull it off in front of an audience and judging panel.
The 14 years and under girls in the Murwillumbah Festival of Performing Arts Classical Ballet improvisation category made it look easy this afternoon, leaping and moving around the stage with much grace a poise to the delight of family, friends and others watching on in the town's civic centre.
Local girl Adeline Harvey was a standout, performing critical leaps and spins from the opening second of her routine.
Ms Harvey finished runner up, narrowly beaten by Kaitlyn McNall from Lismore.
The dance action continues this afternoon and into the evening session starting at 6:30pm with 14 years and under competitors in the song and dance other than tap category.
It will be a smorgasbord of dance tomorrow with modern expressive, classical ballet, tap and Jazz genres on display.
Doors open at 9am for those interested in taking a look at some quality dance routines.
