A GROUP of young Gold Coast dancers have lit up the stage at the Dance Unite Nationals in Sydney.
Students from the Gold Coast’s L. E. Academy of Dance & Theatre danced their way to fourth place in last weekend’s competition, scoring an impressive 91.4 per cent with their Diamonds by Rihanna routine.
The Elite Team is made up of 16 girls aged between 9 and 14 and was only put together in March this year.

Academy Principal Lauren Elizabeth Wormald said she was extremely proud of the girls’ efforts.
“The girls have had an incredible dance season and I am so proud of their growth and development during the short time that they have danced together,” Ms Wormald said.
“My personal highlight of the season was seeing the girls take out the award for ‘Sportsmanship’ at their first ever Eisteddfod at dance life unite regionals the way they look out for each other constantly brings tears to my eyes.”
The L. E. Academy has studios in Ashmore and Broadbeach and is currently taking bookings for term four.
