Three Condobolin High School students have been selected for a week long NAISDA dance scholarship at the Redfern National Centre for Indigenous Excellence.

Students Dylan Brandy, Shannon King and Shirley King were selected out of workshops leading up to ‘Marramarra’, a separate dance event which will take place in Bathurst on July 12.

The students will now travel to Sydney in August to participate in the project.

Dylan said he was surprised when he was selected.

“We all had to dance and the best dancers would get picked,” he said.

“I must have just been lucky.”

While taking part in the scholarship, the Condobolin students will be able to experience what life as a professional dancer might be like.

“When we’re at NAISDA, we’ll get to watch and meet the dancers of Bangarra Dance Theatre,” Dylan said.

“It’ll be good; I’m really excited about it.”
