Poppy steps upPoppy stubbs

Poppy Stubbs saw the live musical productions of Wicked and King Kong and she was hooked. She has wanted to be a dancer ever since.

The 18-year-old local was thrilled to find she was accepted at the Principal Academy of Dance and Theatre Art. She left for Perth on Monday to begin a diploma majoring in dance.

“It is pretty hard to get in,” she said. “It’s nice to take a step towards .”

Ms Stubbs has been teaching dance to children aged between two to 14 and hopes to continue this, but not before she has hit the stage herself.
