Just bought this lovely photo (taken by winkipop media) of Sarah S in her new tutu, performing in the Courier at Ballarat.
Sarah looked stunning, as did Paige D, who is the girl in the photo in my header.They both danced beautifully too.

New photos of tutus and other costumes on stage

I just received a stack of photos from the Royal South Street Society Competitions in Ballarat. Photos were taken by Winkipop media and are beautiful. Winkipop were also great to deal with, all emails answered within five minutes and photos delivered in two days. They were also kind enough to give me permission to post them here and on my Facebook page. Scroll through to the end of all the posts to view them.
