The Elite Diamond Dancers, a small dance studio located in Tanilba Bay, took a group of seven talented and hard working students to the Gold Coast, Queensland to compete at the Aussie Gold International Cheer and Dance Championships.

Bianca Peacock (13), Bindi Steele (13), Amelia Parkes (11), Hollee Pevitt (11), Hannah Coupe (13), Angel Hodson (12) and Braelyn Lawrie (9) were selected to attend this prestigious competition.

This competition attracts studios from across Australia and through New Zealand, so it was a big honour for the Tanilba Bay dancers to attend.

Alarna Grantham from Elite Diamond Dancers told News Of The Area, “We decided in July 2017 that we would be taking a team up to Queensland.”

“These students started training in 2018 and have worked super hard to get to where they are today.”

“Not only did they go to Queensland to compete at Aussie Gold, but they performed at Dreamworld too.”

The girls showed an incredible amount of resilience and teamwork, having to change their entire routine a week out from the competition, due to one of the team members unfortunately hurting herself at home.

Alarna said, “The girls quickly adjusted to the changes and pushed on like professionals.”

The girls performed one jazz group routine and came second place, missing out on first place by only .2 of a point score.

The girls then performed their jazz group routine at Dreamworld, with a few extra special performances.

Bianca performed two solos.

Bindi, Hollee and Hannah performed one solo each.

Bianca and Bindi also performed their duo together for the crowds.

Congratulations to these Tilligerry Peninsula dancers on such a wonderful achievement.
