BUTLER dancers have plenty to cheer about after winning at the Aussie Gold Cheer and Dance state spectacular competition.

Irene McCormack Catholic College’s senior dance team won first place in the senior secondary hip hop section at August 10 and 11 competition, held at HBF Stadium in Mount Claremont.

They were also awarded the highest scoring team in the dance scholastic section of the day with their energetic hip hop routine.

The Irene McCormack Hurricanes cheerleading team, twisters stunt group and lyrical dance team all placed in the top two in their sections.

“I am extremely proud of the dancers and their amazing performance at Aussie Gold,” teacher Sinead Harte said.

“Seeing their reaction when they won scholastic grand champions was such a beautiful moment as they were so humble and unassuming.

“I cannot be prouder of the way the students performed and am so excited for their next competition at the ATC Competition in September.”

All competition teams and Year 8-12 dance class students, will perform their dances at the college annual dance night on September 25.
