Amelie Pollock won the 14-years contemporary dance championship at the Murwillumbah Festival of Performing Arts held last month.
Amelie is from Dance Dynamics Byron Bay and competed against dancers from Coffs Harbour to the Gold Coast in the two-week annual competition, Dance Dynamics director Kate Histon said.
‘Amelie works very hard and is incredibly passionate about her dancing. This was a well deserved award,’ she said.
Amelie’s dance routine was called ‘Lilikoi Boy’ and included allusions to an elemental pixie character.
The North Coast Dance Festival will be held over  August 25–28 at the Byron Bay High School.
