Three sisters from Sunbury are eagerly preparing to compete in the Australian All Star Cheer and Dance State Championships this weekend.
Alanna, 15, Lexie, 11, and Mckenzie Romeijn, 7, train together every week at Signature Cheer and Dance in New Gisborne.
Alanna said they had been doing extra practise ahead of the state competition.
“I’m actually so excited about it,” she said.
Alanna and Lexie will compete in a stunt team that has taken out first prize in all other competitions it has entered this year.
Alanna says she’s been passionate about cheering and dancing for years.
She’s also had success in the modelling world – in February she won the title of Miss Petite Victoria, granting her entry to the Miss Fashion Week Australia competition in October.
The teen has also won entry to the Follow Your Dreams National Dance Championship to be held in January.
She says dance is her greatest passion, and heading into her VCE it is going to become her main focus.
On top of competing, Alanna is also working towards gaining her dance teacher’s licence.
