Cha Cha Cha, Swing Waltz & Quickstep!

Jaime Kirkpatrick Ballroom Dance 2It’s no surprise that Queensland Academies creative thinkers love CAS – one-third of the IB Diploma inner core that complements a challenging academic program in an holistic way, providing opportunities for self-determination, collaboration, accomplishment and enjoyment.

One such example of CAS learning (and winning!) is that which Year 11 student Jaime Kirkpatrick (QACI) has recently experienced through her ballroom dancing lessons.

On Easter Saturday at the Queensland National Dance Sport Championship Jaime participated in a competition and she and her partner came away with First Place in the Cha Cha Cha, Second Place in the Swing Waltz, and Third Place in the Quickstep. Congratulations Jaime!
