Jumping for joy

Dance students of the Helderberg Youth Performing Arts Trust (HYPAT) were again able to participate in the National Youth Arts Festival in Montagu last weekend, thanks to a donation from EET Investments. Five dance variations, including stage dance, modern and classical ballet, were presented, and they brought home two silvers, two golds and one double gold.
