Legs China group
MICHELLE Heine’s Legs Dance Studio is off this week to the Tianjin International Children’s Festival.

With children from more than 40 countries participating, the festival, which runs from July 27 to 31, is estimated to be one of the largest children’s festivals in the world. The aim is for talented dancers to showcase their love of dance as well as experiencing various cultures of other attendees.

Twenty of Legs’ senior dancers have been working hard on their opening ceremony routine as well as their own 20-minute show to be performed in the event hosted by the municipal government in the northern Chinese port city.

Students from the studio have been attending the festival every three years since 2000 and it is believed to be one of the only two studios from Australia to have been invited to the event.

Before they leave on July 23, they’ll show of their 20-minute show at Legs Dance Studio in Hume at 7pm on Thursday, July 12, and their opening ceremony routine, ”I Like It Like That!” in the Timomatic concert at the Street Theatre on Sunday, July 22.

Bookings to thestreet.org.au or 6247 1223.
