Danzenergy Christmas show Dancing Stars dazzles audiences

AUDIENCE members at Ramptons Danzenergy Studio's Christmas spectacular, Dancing Stars, got into the festive spirit.

The concert was held at the Gladstone Marina Marquee on Sunday from 2pm and featured 90 students aged between two and 18 years of age, who had been vigorously rehearsing their tap, jazz, ballet and contemporary novel Christmas routines for more than three months.

The one-night-only show had everything from dainty Christmas angels en pointe, gorgeous mice, Cindy Lou Whos and mischievous grinches.

The Dancing Stars program started off with a cool-feel first act titled 'Winter Wonderland', with Act 2 a 'Summer Sizzle', and finished with Act 3, 'Marquee Party'.

"The children had the best time," studio director Sherrie Rampton said.

"It made me think, why hadn't we had one before?"

"It went without a hitch."

Ms Rampton said the Elvis-themed Santas were a big hit on the night- four dads who got into the swing of things.

This performance would wrap things up for the studio for the year.

Group classes would cease over the festive period, although solo tuition was still being undertaken with many dancers preparing for the Bundaberg Eisteddfod in April next year, she said.
