We never expected to get the news to say we had qualified with a percent in the 90s. We had the ABSOLUTE best 10 days out in Spain competing and making friends with studios from across the entire globe. Their duo came home with a rank of 20th which out of the entire world in such a ginormous section we were over the moon. I allowed the girls to be apart of some very special group dances put together with other studios and we were thrilled to be apart of 2 5th place's and 1 7th place ranking in the world. We attend master classes with world renound coaches such as Rebecca Davies and the opening ceremony parade involving every country was a memory we will never forget. The girls made me incredibly proud and it's an achievement we will hold dear to our hearts forever. I hope for the studio to aim to be back here again one year!

We cant wait to be apart more award ceromonies in the future .
MISS STARZ OCT 2022 2ND RUNNER UP
What a comp! Every comp gets tougher and tougher and the talent witnessed today was out of this world! I am so honoured the studio brought home 2/3 titles when there was only 5 of my girls representing from AODC. Sienna was crowed MISS STARZ 2ND RUNNER UP after showing amazing talent in all 3 of her solos throughout the day. Sienna placed 2nd with her contemporary clowning around which was amazing as Sienna was the youngest in the division. Sienna also went on to place in the top 5 highest scoring solos of the day and was 4th overall with her contemporary! Amazing work Sienna.
HEAD GIRL 2023 AVA
My head dancer award for 2023 has been award to Ava. Ava has been with academy from day one of opening its doors and has shown insane loyalty, progress and leadership skills. Ava is someone I feel I can count on along with someone who has earned the respect of her peers. Ava has come such a long way and having previously danced for the elite competition team knows the dedication and commitment required to be great. This has also taught her the challenges and struggles that come with being committed to dance, so I am super confident she can help to lift people up when things get tough and help people realise their full potential. With our first upcoming annual academy showcase I feel Ava will be a great role model for all, and help her peers be their very best. Congratulations Ava!
