Indigo’s Bollywood Solo won 24 on 30 points at the International Dance Competition at Raleigh International Festival 2014 – one of the highest scores at the event, won for its graceful rendition of a Bollywood number by our talented student Melizabeth Cooper. Top marks on : choreography, choice of music, artistry, musicality, great connection to the audience, great energy, super confidence..and as usual…wonderful costumery!
Even though in its first year, the International Dance Competition was a tough one for our students in their First year. Although learning with us for just under 3 months, they were pitted against international professional dance teams for years: the formidable Irish, the flexible Chinese, the rambunctious Mexican and the sassy Middle eastern among others. Indigo held their own, and were awarded by a team of qualified judges, one of the highest scores in the runners-up league, and certainly the highest in the Bollywood category!
Congratulations to Melizabeth and all our wonderful students for this victory!
