Friends and fellow Ransley Ballet and Dance Centre students Amelia Ransley and Ava-Louise Devine, will head to New York together in the new year after being accepted into the famed Joffrey Ballet School.
Ava and Amelia are the latest in line of students from the world renowned Ransley studio accepted into the prestigious school.
Amelia was born with ballet in her blood.
Her aunt, Nicole Ransley, and grandmother Joy Ransley, both danced with the The Royal Ballet Company in London.
Joy and Dawn Ransley spent six decades developing some of Australia's leading ballet dancers and theatre performers before retiring in 2013 and handing the baton to Joy's daughter Nicole.
