Emmasyn and Sienna are on a high after their national championship win.
The Melton duo, both 11, returned with gold in the jazz and contemporary sections of the Showcase Australia Dance Championships on the Gold Coast last month.
The competition attracts dancers and troupes from all over Australia and New Zealand vying for a national title in jazz, tap, contemporary, hip-hop, ballet, acrobatics and musical theatre.
Emmasyn, from Hoppers Crossing, and Melton’s Sienna have been dancing since they were three and teamed up this year for their first performances as a duo.
The girls, who dance with Galactic Dance and Events in Melton, came away with the overall duo/trio highest score for the Australasian competition.
Emmasyn’s mother Ainsley Foust said she was “exceptionally proud” of the girls.
“I’m blown away with how well they did,” Ms Foust said.
“It’s their first time performing as a duo and they spent their holidays practising.
“Individually they both ranked in the top-20 in Australasia in their age group.
“They were also a part of a team of 30 other local Melton students who competed with troupes coming away with amazing results.”
