A PERFORMANCE spot at the G20 in Brisbane and Cairns later this year is the latest goal for a group of Mount St Bernard College dance students.
The seven students were recently accepted into the Bangarra Rekindling Dance Program.
Herberton’s Mount St Bernard’s College was the smallest secondary school to audition for a place in the dance program.
Despite this it had the highest number of successful students after Trinity Bay State School in Far North Queensland.
Seven of MSB’s 10 students who auditioned were selected, out of a total of 32 places available in the program.
The college dancers have now ambitiously tendered for the G20 opening ceremony.
Bangarra Dance Theatre is a company with an international reputation and strong history of producing and performing Indigenous works.
The Bangarra Rekindling Dance Program will be delivered at three separate gatherings this year in conjunction with the local Aboriginal /Torres Strait Islander elders and community members in Far North Queensland.
