Somerset students have taken the Oh La La Dance Extravaganza by storm. On Sunday morning, a group of nine Somerset girls, performed at the Extravaganza, their first eisteddfod performance for the year.

Annika Poeszus (Year 12, Franklin) was keen to create another dance group and continue to pursue the means to give us the opportunity to compete in a range of eisteddfods, after the success of her Personal Project in 2016. Annika taught us the routine during two intensive days over the Christmas holidays and we were excited to finally perform our Lyrical routine.

The performance told an emotional story, having the strength to overcome bullying, a topic which many can relate. After our final rehearsal on Friday afternoon, and with nerves and much excitement, we were ready to hit the stage.

The group consisting of Anna Boone, Kristen Crasto, Makayla Carkazis, Jacinta Mai, Bria Philips, Katie O'laughlin, Bella Harris, Jenna Goldie and Emma Lekich received first place in our High Schools division. We were even more excited after finding out that we were also the highest scoring routine of the day!

We were all extremely ecstatic with these results and would love to thank Annika and Somerset College for this opportunity. We cannot wait to compete in the other eisteddfods throughout the year and hopefully come away with more amazing results.
