SLIP into your dancing shoes and support Wangaratta’s finest dancers by coming along to the Wangaratta Festival of Dance this weekend.
Three young stars who will be stepping into their own dancing shoes for the festival are seven year old Dakota Denyer, 11 year old Makayla Nesbitt and 13 year old Jarrah Pellegrino from DanzWorx Wangaratta.
Despite her age, Dakota Denyer already has three years of dancing behind her, going into her fourth year of dance, and third year of competitions.
“My favourite dance style is jazz, my mum used to dance and teaches dancing now, so it’s always been in the family,” she said.
Dakota will be competing in the eight years and under open jazz, open lyrical and novice ballet sections in this year’s festival of dance.
