Meet Stella and Phoebe, two wonderfully passionate students from Joanne Grace School of Dance in Woollongong.
The girls are about to swap the beautiful escarpment, beaches and green hills of South Coast NSW for the bustling excitement, heady thrills and bright lights of New York City. They're traveling to compete in the finals of the Youth American Grand Prix (YAGP) one of the most prestigious events in the dance calendar.
They generously gave their time to sit down to have a chat with us about their dance experiences so far and about their nerves, hopes and dreams for the future.
We wish Stella and Phoebe the very best on their journey!
