A GROUP of Wimmera preschool dancers have performed on national television.
District Dance Studio's Ebony Mason, 3, Bailey Matthews, 5, Scarlett Grigg, 5, Braxton Ciurleo, 6, and Charlee Brunt, 5, appeared on Nick Jr's Ready Set Dance program for the first time on Monday morning.
"They were just so excited for the opportunity," studio director Linda Grigg said.
"Our students adapted amazingly well and we had 100 per cent support from parents. It was wonderful to see the kids step up and show how they have grown from the opportunity."
District Dance Studio, which recently celebrated its 30th year, provides Ready Set Dance classes in St Arnaud, Donald, Stawell, and Horsham.

The international dance program was developed in collaboration with expert preschool dance educators and focuses on developing confidence, co-ordination, and creativity.
District Dance Studio students were given the opportunity to perform on Nick Jr after the dance studio won the 2019 Ready Set Dance Regional Studio of the Year award.
Mrs Grigg said the students prerecorded the performance in January, before the COVID-19 pandemic. She said most of her students have been doing remote classes for the past few months.
"We're looking forward to moving back to studio," Mrs Grigg said. "We're looking forward to getting back and delivering this amazing program."
