Dancing For A Star
Year 2 student and rising ballerina, Sienna Goarin, had the opportunity with her sister and dancing studio to dance for a former ballerina, who had recently turned 105, at her nursing home. This is her story...
"Today myself and my sister Amelie, my dance friends and teachers visited a nursing home. We drove to a nursing home in Burleigh. It was Victoria's birthday. She was turning 105!!! Myself and my dance friends performed a few special dance routines. Victoria and the other old residents have lived for a long long time. Victoria was a ballerina in the Russich (sic) ballet before World War Two (WW2). We gave flowers for her birthday and did two dances. These were classical ballet and a jazz dance. I felt so good and it was amazing to dance for her. It made me feel so happy and good inside. I'm so extremely happy I did it."
