Roma dancers unite for major fund-raiser
THEY might prefer different styles, but there's not questioning Sophie Tilbury and Kate Martyn's love of dancing.
The Roma girls were part of more than 60 young dancers who put on a show in support of Step Into Dance.
Both Sophie and Kate are former and current dance captains at Dancewest, one of the many dance schools run in the Maranoa.
The performances they gave on Sunday, which featured both hip-hop and contemporary dance, were the final products following months of work.
Kate said the work done by Step Into Dance helped make dancing more accessible for everyone.
"Dancing is expensive already - you've got the shoes, outfits and tuition fees,” she said.
Dancewest co-ordinator Jodie Noon said the funds raised from Sunday would go towards activities during the second-half of 2016.
"Step Into Dance help support dance schools and students by getting us things we couldn't otherwise access because of cost,” she said.
Step Into Dance co-founder Kylie Sabine said the Garden Party was their fundraiser for the year.
