Two ballet enthusiasts have landed on the pathway to stardom after the pair were awarded prestigious dancing scholarships. Siblings Harvey, 10, and Toby Mulcahy, 13, will now call Perth home after beginning their full-time scholarship at the WA Youth Ballet Company last Monday.

The Grace Christian School brothers have been dancing for four years at the Studio of Classical and Contemporary Dance after they emigrated from the United Kingdom with their family.

With a 28-hour week Monday through Saturdays, the brothers said they looked forward to honing their craft on a state level.

“We will try, try, fail, get up, and try again,” Toby said. “I like to dance and move around – it makes me feel good and bubbly inside.”

The young dancers hail from a long-line of dancers including a ballet dancing mother, gymnast father and dance teaching grandfather.

Mother Tracy Mulcahy said the family unit would be divided between Leschenault and the big smoke as they do all they can to support their dreams. “It’s a fantastic experience and most children wouldn’t get such a chance,” she said.

The scholarship covers their tuition with all expenses included.
