Dance, dance, dancin' to LA

THESE girls can really dance ... and dance.

The Brunswick Valley School of Dance held a 12-hour dance-a-thon yesterday to raise money for a trip to the US next year.

A troupe from the dance school will head to Los Angeles for Dance Excellence 2009.

Held at Brunswick's Memorial Hall, the dance-a-thon was 12 hours of non-stop dance classes including jazz, classical ballet, contemporary and hip-hop.

The dance troupe's teacher Carly Connors said she went to the LA dance competition in 2005 and wanted her students to have the same experience.

“It's not often that girls from a small town get such a big opportunity,” she said. “The girls don't know what they are in for.”
