Second year New Zealand Dance School student Georgia Powley has been awarded a scholarship that allows her to become part of the Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2016. The company will convene in mid-January to prepare for their next show Speed of Light which will tour Dunedin, Wellington, Christchurch, and Auckland. Lynn Freeman spoke to Georgia along with her fellow Royal New Zealand Ballet dancer Laura Jones; who won the same Todd Scholarship prize back in 2012.
