Rising Star at St John’s
It has certainly been a very exciting time for St John’s student Natalie Scott with her sudden passion and success in Latin dance. In June of this year, Natalie participated in the Australian Latin Dance Championships at state level and to her excitement was awarded the following titles, Queensland Female Junior Salsa Solo Champion and Queensland Pro-am Mixed Duet Champion (open division).
Following on from her success, Natalie then went on to compete in the National Championships and placed second in the National Youth Division and third in the Pro-am Mixed Latin Duet (open division).
Although she qualified to represent Australia at the World Championships, Natalie has decided to further develop her dance skills and return to competition next year. This is an incredible achievement given that Natalie hasn’t even been dancing Latin for a year. We warmly congratulate her and look forward to hearing more about her journey.
