FESTIVAL OF THE IMAGINATION

Spaghetti Circus helped entertain the crowd at the recent Festival of the Imagination at Ocean Shores Public School. The Mighty One girls presented a series of routines which showcased their skills; after opening with an aerobic dance warm-up, they skipped in the long rope, hula hooped and tumbled. With two of their group away sick, the six remaining girls stepped up to adapt their performance to fill in the gaps. Congratulations to Avalon, Jaia, Hannah, Kailani, Zoe and Maya.
