The Bass Coast Community Foundation is proud to announce that the recipients for the Performance Awards in 2017 have been selected. All three were secondary school students in 2016, living in the Bass Coast region, with a demonstrated talent in their performance discipline, and who will need to move away in 2017 to continue their studies in the performing arts.
The 2017 recipients are:
In 2017 Lucy will be continuing her ballet studies at the Queensland School of Ballet in Brisbane, having been offered a place at this prestigious school.
Already an accomplished professional performer who completed Year 12 in 2016, in 2017 Jake will commence a Bachelor of Music course at Monash University.
Having graduated from the Australian Ballet School in 2016, Xavier is about to embark on an intensive round of auditions with European ballet companies with the intention of securing a contract to perform. For example, on 21 January Xavier will be auditioning for the Nederlands Dans Theatre in the Hague. NDT is the world's most renowned classical contemporary company.
The Bass Coast Community Foundation is proud to be able to help these incredibly dedicated, talented and hard working local young people achieve their dreams. The Bass Coast Community can be very sure that we will be hearing and seeing a lot more of all three in the future as their careers progress.
The Foundation thanks the Robert Salzer Foundation for their support of this initiative.
