Winners for the 2018 Jacqueline Morland Awards announced

Congratulations to the 2018 Jacqueline Morland Awards participants in Queensland and their teacher who worked hard to prepare them. The Awards which took place over the weekend of 24 - 25 March saw almost 300 students compete and 125 take part in the special dance performance items which are a highlight of the awards and feature students from a number of dance schools all performing together.


A huge weekend in the Brisbane dance calendar we would like to thank our special guest adjudicators Garry Trinder, Director New Zealand School of Dance and Linda Ridgeway-Gamblin, Course Director of Sydney Dance Company’s Pre-Professional Year.  Our thanks also goes to our commissioned choreographer Shelley Moore and guest choreographers Rebecca Hall, Kylie Goeldner, Justine Summers and Nicole Galea. 

An event this size is simply not possible without the support our wonderful and generous volunteers who work hard behind the scenes to make everything run smoothly. Thank you to each and every one of them especially the Queensland Regional Advisory Panel.  


Lastly a thanks to all our sponsors who continue to support our events and help us reward our students for their efforts.
