photohunt: Awesome


Olivia, 3rd from left

Hungary dance.


This is an awesome group, group of ladies and girls in Australia. My niece Olivia dances with this group and my sister Helen furnished me with this.

They were invited to join the Gold Coast Japan and friends day celebration to raise funds for the victims of Japan Fukushima Disaster of 2011. Incidently, we have a six year old Japanese girl dancing with the Indonesia Dance Group. Airi and family had come to Australia to escape the radiation in Fukushima and was due to go back to Japan the next day. It must have been a very special and memorahttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifble day for Airi and family when they acknowledged her in front of thousands.

Just a bit of information about Indonesia Dance Group Gold Coast
The oldest dancer is from Taiwan and is aged 65 years and the youngest Australian girl is 5 years and has been dancing for 2 years. The nationalities of these dancers are Australian, Aborigines, Indonesian, Taiwanese, Japanese, Malaysian, Philippines, Cambodian, Hungary, Indian and Chinese.

These girls love to dance but most cannot afford to pay for usual ballet or other dancing lessons. They pay a small fee to cover the cost of the rental of the dancing room. Every Saturday, they come together to learn the Indonesia Ballet. They are ever so ready to give up their weekends to perform for the community, such as in the multicultural festivals and nursing homes.

Dance is a most refined body language, crosses border and barriers.
The beautiful arm and finger movements are amazing.

Hey Olivia

I really enjoyed watching your dancing performance yesterday – you become more and more graceful each time I see you.

I can remember when I first used to come watch you, you were the youngest and were following the older girls. Now you are one of the older girls, and the little ones are now looking up to you.
