Students in Tasmania compete in the Joan Burnett Scholarship
Held in the studio where Joan Burnett herself once taught!
Students in Tasmania had the opportunity to develop their performance skills in the same studio where Joan Burnett once taught for this years' Joan Burnett Scholarship last month. Adjudicator and former Principal of The Australian Ballet, Daniel Gaudiello shared with the students his own experiences in developing as a dancer and the importance of loving the art form. Alongside guest teacher Julie Fleming, Daniel Gaudiello gave students some invaluable advice to help them take their dancing to the next level.
