Sancta Dancing Stars take down the Competition
Never one to shy away from competition, Sancta students came out in mass for the Intercollege Palladian Dance Competition. Backed by an army of red and white supporters, our competitors Cassandra Horseman and Sarah King weeks of preparation were put to the test.
Cassandra claimed second place, with her somber dance solo on lost love and heart break. Her facial expressions portrayed the agony her character was feeling, holding the entire audience on edge.
No stranger to the stage, Cassandra has been dancing since she was two years old and is currently training to represent Sydney University at the Cheer Leading National Competition as well as studying playing the Oboe professionally and attending the Conservatorium of Music, Sydney. Finding time to catch up with Cassandra can be tricky as she is a ball of fire, always on the go to one of her many activities, including tutoring younger children in Ballet and teaching private Oboe lessons.
Contrastingly, Sarah King wowed the crowd with her upbeat latin style dancing and was awarded Highly Commended. Like Cassandra, Sarah has been dancing since she was four years old, training in ballet at her local school before moving to Sydney to pursue a degree in International and Global Studies at the University of Sydney. True to form, Sarah is also a talented Piano player, performing for the College community at the annual Mother Daughter Dinner.
