She Made It!

She made it! Kyah completed the entire Queensland Ballet Summer School. She loved every minute of it.

There was a “performance” at the end of today so the students could show us some of what they had learned through the week. Kyah was able to participate in 2 of the 3 genres. Understandably, she danced apprehensively, but she blended in well enough.

A huge thank you to the staff at QB for accommodating Kyah with her injury and choreographing her into the routines for the performances today.

Kyah made some new friends; the girls all seem lovely and we hope they maintain contact as the time passes. She also learned different teaching styles and personalities, and most of all I think she learned that her body is able to go a bit further than she thought it could.

5.5 straight days of dancing and her foot has held up. Amazing. What a great experience for her on so many levels.

Li Cunxin, the current Artistic Director of Queensland Ballet, spoke to us today about the value of participating in a summer school, and the experiences he had as a growing, developing dancer. I can see Kyah definitely benefited from all aspects he mentioned, as well as her personal development and confidence in her own ability again.


Final Day of Summer School. She made it!
