The year eight student from Irrawang High School just returned from the National Dance and Cheer Competition held in Melbourne last week.

The competition saw over 10,000 athletes from 1400 teams across Australia compete in Dance and Cheer over three solid days of competition.

A fourth day was also held for the ‘Pinnacle Championships’.

Georgia was fortunate enough to be asked to compete in the invitation only Pinnacle Championships, which sees the best of the best go head to head.

Her results at Nationals included two National Titles for Lyrical and Jazz in the dance section, and two National Titles for Level 2 Senior and Level 2 Open in Cheer.

Georgia also achieve National Grand Champion in Level 2.

In the Pinnacle Championships, she completed in various sections, and came away with a first in cheer, and a third in cheer.

Georgia’s mother Julie Almond told News Of The Area, “It’s nice to know the hard work, dedication and commitment her and the team have shown can turn into great results on the floor.”

“What was more important was the unsolicited feedback from competitors and parents about the sportsmanship and humility that MCPD showed regardless of how they performed as a team.”

“We’re so proud of her,” she said.

Georgia has been training in Cheerleading for four years, and clearly has a great passion and talent for her chosen career.

Georgia and her team at MC Planet Dance have several exciting overseas trips and competitions coming up.
