IT'S taken 10 years of hard work and countless hours of practice but Bundaberg teenager Sarah Dinsey's efforts to be the best dancer possible have paid off.

The 15-year-old Bundaberg Dance Academy student has been dancing since she was five. This week she was accepted into the Australian Dance Performance Institute in Brisbane after wowing the judges with her audition video.

"It's so exciting," Sarah said.

"My family is moving to Brisbane so I can go."

The talented dancer is a fan of all types of dance including contemporary, lyrical and tap but she has one passion above all others.

"Ballet is my favourite," she said.

Bundaberg Dance Academy principal Peta Jacobsen has been Sarah's teacher for 10 years.

"It's a very big deal," Mrs Jacobsen said.

"I'm really proud of her.

"She's a great dancer."

Mrs Jacobsen said anyone wanting to see Sarah and her classmates in action could head along to the academy's end of year concert on December 15 at the Shalom College Performing Arts Precinct.
