Dungog dancers heading to Florida

If you think you are too busy to pursue your passion, take a look at these Dungog teenagers.

Both studying and working five jobs between them Abbey Daughtrey and Georgia Townsend still find the time to dance.

The talented duo are students at Evolution of Dance in Rutherford travelling from their Dungog homes at least three times a week for classes.

Combined with their study and work they have been competing in dance competitions all year with wins in each of the six events.

They traveled to Hawaii in May in 2019 where they placed second in the Global Games.

At the recent AASCF Nationals in Melbourne the girls and their team came away with a win in Jazz and Hip Hop and a second in Lyrical.

This also won them a bid for the World championship to be held in Florida in April 2020 for hip hop and jazz.

Eighteen-year-old Abbey works at Joey's Early Learning Centre, Dungog Pizza and Chic Clothing company while studying a Certificate 3 in both childcare and business.

She hasn't ruled out taking a role as a performer on a cruise ship.

Georgia, 17, who attends All Saints College, St Mary's at Maitland where she will study the HSC in 2020 hopes to become a nurse after a gap year. She also works at Dungog Pizza and the IGA.

The girls started dancing as little girls - their mothers Kim Daughtrey and Fiona Townsend are good friends.
