From the moment the audience starting clapping through the 15 year dance in the very first section until the end of the finale, the vibe in the Opera House Concert Hall was electric.  It was without a doubt the most responsive, supportive and excited audience we’ve ever had.  The calibre of the girls on stage was extraordinary and they all gave a performance that the audience will remember for many years, especially the stunning 15 girls in Grand and the amazing Elite Ladies. Congratulations to all the teachers who have produced this level of strength, grace, control and expression.  A million thanks to the backstage BJP workers and to the wonderful SOH staff, to the performers themselves and especially to the fantastic audience who made it a ‘night of nights’!
