A young performer from Hillcrest Christian College in Clyde North has taken out top prizes in calisthenics at a recent performance competition at NIDA in Sydney.
Year 12 student and Narre Warren South local Luci Hendrickse placed fourth in the individual category at the 2017 Australian Calisthenics Federation Nationals, but took out the top prize with her team.
She auditioned alongside hundreds of other hopefuls to be selected to the 2017 Victorian Juniors Calisthenics Team.
Luci has been dedicated to achieving her best in this gymnastics-dance fusion sport since she was a small child.
She said she had been doing calisthenics for as long as she could remember, and still loved every minute of it.
“When I was younger I was introduced it to through our family friends who did it,” she said.
“It’s a really good way to get into some type of dancing and what I can remember is going every week and having all my friends there and learning new tricks.”
“I love that it gives me the chance to be myself and dance at the same time.”
Luci’s mother Sharna Hendrickse said it was a delight to be able to see her daughter perform in Sydney as she usually took up one of the various backstage roles.
“She was fantastic,” Mrs Hendrickse said.
“All her hard work and work of the coaches really showed in her performances, so it was really wonderful to see their hard work rewarded.”
