Erica Paglianiti (Year 5) will soon get the opportunity to dance for Victoria having recently been selected to represent her state at the upcoming 23rd Annual Australasian Energetiks Scholarships, a dance competition which will be held from Friday 17th – 19th July, 2015.

It’s an outstanding achievement for Erica, who has been performing since the age of 3 and now dances every week at the ‘Dance Discovery’ School in Lalor.

Although she also performs in the styles of Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Acro and Hip-Hop, it is Tap dancing for which she will represent the state of Victoria. To earn selection at the upcoming Scholarships, Erica was required to take part in a number of performance based examinations which showcased her talent and ability on the dance floor with only a handful of students gaining selection from Dance Schools across the state.

Whilst she is proud of her achievements, Erica’s real enjoyment comes from being able to express herself whilst dancing, learning new moves and styles, and meeting new friends who share her interests in dance along the way.

Along with the dream of one day becoming a professional tap dancer, Erica hopes to continue representing her state and performing at Dance Discovery, whilst mastering the art of performing a front aerial flip on the dance floor. For now however, her sights are solely focused on the upcoming Australasian Energetiks Scholarships.

Marymede Catholic College congratulates Erica on her recent achievements and we wish her all the very best in her future dancing endeavours.
