Scholarship and Award Winners

2019 School Spirit Award – Liana

Liana is one of the sweetest students at the studio. Whether she is in the waiting room, assisting at a studio event,  working in a student teacher capacity or taking part in a class her compassion and kindness is unwavering. She is always very helpful and offers her assistance whenever she is able. We would all benefit from her organisational skills. It’s a life skill that is hard to teach and here Liana is with it in abundance. She is well respected by other students and teachers and is a pleasure to have around.

Thank you Liana for everything you do for the studio.

2019 School Spirit Award – Summer

This year has been a year of growth for Summer. As a member of our Elite Mini Team she has worked extremely hard to maintain a disciplined manner in all her classes to become a well rounded dancer and performer. She has focused on building resilience and learnt how to push through some boundaries that were limiting her talent and with this has achieved great outcomes personally and as a team member.  She is developing some beautiful qualities that have been remarkable for someone of her age and will be an added bonus to her throughout life. Summer is thriving in our Elite program and is evolving into a very talented dancer.

Keep striving Summer, your journey has only just begun.

Well this lady is just delightful. She is respectful, very hard working, super talented and has proven herself in each class she has undertaken with all her teachers. Calliane could have received the scholarship from any of the dance styles she takes classes in as she is a very well rounded dancer who is adaptable to all styles.

2019 Contemporary Scholarship – Jenna

Jenna is an absolute treasure to have in class. She always works hard and is extremely respectful and a beautiful friend to everyone around the Stepnout community.

Well done Jenna you have stepped outside of your comfort this year and we can see the difference in your dance ability, flow and stage presence. Contemporary can be a difficult dance style to embrace as it requires great storytelling and feeling. It has been wonderful to see this transformation in your dancing as you have matured this year. Keep up the great work. 

2019 Ballet Scholarship – Indi-Rose

Indi-Rose brings a bundle of personality to class. From the first time she walked in I found her confidence and enthusiasm enchanting. Indi-Rose has worked so hard this year with her technique and pushing herself I can see a large improvement not only skill level but also being proud of her achievements as everything is starting to fall into place for her in ballet. She works very hard in class to master combinations and routines. She loves to perform and does so with a flair. She is a friend to all her teammates. Her bright and bubbly personality is infectious and always present.

It has been a pleasure to teach you Ballet, Indi-Rose. Keep striving to be the best you can be and don’t lose that spunk.

2019 Tap Scholarship – Chelsea

Chelsea has been an absolute delight in Tap this year. I have had the pleasure of teaching Chelsea most of her years at Stepnout and have found she has become a great leader this year in class. She always has a smile on her face, except when she is fine-tuning a new step or combination in class and practices until she has mastered it. Whenever she has been asked to assist teammates with tricky combinations she has always done so with great confidence and respect. She understands how to break steps down for others and work at their pace. It’s great to see this level of understanding in someone as young as Chelsea. She has the utmost respect for all our staff and fellow students.

I am so proud of how far you have grown this year Chelsea. Your ability to make corrections and keep working through difficult challenges has helped your confidence immensely. It has been wonderful to watch you grow. Keep up the great work.

2019 Jazz Scholarship – Alina

Having Alina in class is an absolute pleasure as she always works very hard and thrives on challenges. Alina is a quiet achiever who shines in the classroom and on stage. She’s dedicated to being the best jazz dancer that she can be and takes corrections on board with respect and maturity. She works hard in every class every week and is always polite and respectful. Alina has undertaken private lessons this year, working with her teachers to improve all over technique and develop a jazz solo routine that she will perform at competitions in 2020.
