Encore Dance Studio impresses

FOUR-year-old Charlotte Smith enjoyed performing her first concert for the annual Encore Dance Studio performance at the Moncrieff Theatre on Saturday night.

The concert was a great success with 900 proud parents, family and friends watching the 350 dancers aged from four years to senior girls approximately 30 years.

Charlotte’s thrilled mother Jacqui Smith said the performance was fantastic and the dances were suitable for every different age group.

“My little girl Charlotte loved it she is already talking about next year’s performance,” she said. “It was amazing to see so many kids involved. You don’t know how many talented kids are in Bundaberg until you go to a concert like that.”

Mrs Smith said the costumes on the evening were great and they were suitable for every dancer.

Encore Dance Studio principal Penny Curd said the production for the evening really was a family affair.

“My father Lance Curd creates the props, my mother Wendy Curd and myself design and sew the costumes and my husband Nathan Teske co-ordinates the backstage crew,” she said.

Encore Dance Studio is in its fifth year of production and starts rehearsals six months before the annual performance.

“Every year the studio keeps growing and growing,” she said.
