Several of our Level 3 and 4 Artistic levels girls attended an Inner-City Region clinic at Homebush on Sunday June 2nd. They were guided by expert coaches at six different stations where they refined current skills and were exposed to new techniques to work on. Thank you to Glen Hay, Taylor Jones and Mariennne Butler for accompanying the girls.
