SHAILER Park Primary School dance students took to the stage to show off some of their latest routines at a special performance to help raise money for charity.

The dance team, which consisted of students from Year 3 up to Year 7, performed in front of a large crowd at the ERPAC Centre on Saturday night.

The Shailerettes dance coach Monica Bietzel said the team qualified for the show by sending in a video.

"We got asked to showcase at the dance event, so we submitted in a DVD and it was shown to a judging panel of about eight people," Ms Bietzel said.

"We were then selected to go straight in to the finals.

"There were about 35 different schools involved so we competed against high school teams and professional dance schools.

Ms Bietzel said she was extremely proud of the team and their efforts.

"The team practises every Monday afternoon after school and four times a week during lunchtimes," she said.

"All of the dancers are really dedicated."

Dancer Lauren Van Moarseveen was one of the dancers who performed on Saturday night.

She said dancing was one of her favourite things to do.

"I have been dancing since I was about two years old," the 11-year-old said.

"I love to dance because it is fun and you get to make lots of new friends and be involved in competitions."

All of the money raised from the dance competition will go towards helping disadvantaged children participate in social events.
