Last week 11 girls from Runcorn Park performed at the Qld Buddha Festival in Southbank. The girls were extremely well rehearsed and gave a polished performance of all aspects of physie: exercise, strength, flexibility, grace and expression.  But most importantly…. they had FUN doing it! As you’ll see in the video clip…

Casey (11yrs) said “It was fantastic because I got to spend the whole day with my amazing classmates and awesome teacher!”

Deneika (14yrs) said “I loved performing on the stage – it was a great experience and there was a big crowd! The best part of the day was all the laughs we had while taking heaps of photos in the rainforest and all around Southbank”.
