Since 2011, the LOcREaDO Junior Dance Program, a ground breaking dance program, has been enriching young Australian dancers with more than a taste for performance. In fact this program is fuelling young dancer’s insatiable hunger to confidently perform within a dance company, and in turn experience dance in the “real world”. Past and present Locreado dancers, who have been given the opportunity to represent the LOcREaDO Junior Dance Program, are strong, passionate performers – inside and out – and know what it takes to “cut it” in the competitive world of dance!
“I do what I do because I love it, not because I want to be the best” Loredo Malcolm 2009.
