Tutus, tap shoes, and refined techniques were on display at the weekend at two annual dance concerts.
Daphne Learoyd School of Dance and U Can Dance performed their year’s work with an exciting showcase of talent.
Daphne Learoyd principal Roslyn Todd said last week she was looking forward to demonstrating what her students were capable of across the genres of classical, contemporary, jazz, hip hop and tap.
More than 100 students took to the stage as well as several guest artists — this included previous students who had returned for the occasion.
‘‘It was an enjoyable way to end the year and to celebrate after all the exams and auditions,’’ Ms Todd said.
The U Can Dance program for its junior and senior concerts features a similar list of dance styles, as well as lyrical, cheerleading and song.
There was also special performances by former Tap Dog Shane Preston and television’s So You Think You Can Dance top-nine contestant Loredo Malcolm.
