Dance Troupe performance at St Andrew's Aged Care

Our Dance Troupe performed an hour long concert for the residents at St. Andrews Village in Hughes on Saturday, 31 August. The girls were absolutely fantastic and we have already been asked back to perform again nearer Christmas! The residents were clapping and tapping their feet and were very appreciative.

We would like to thank our dancers for their ongoing commitment to entertaining our community and attending community events.
