We asked the 2019 competition candidates what lucky charms they will bring to the competition.
‘I have many lucky charms. On every tutu or other ballet costume my Mum stitches a lucky charm on the costume which relates to the variation or dance. It is a little acknowledgement to the variation and it reminds me of all the people that have helped me with that dance.’ – Primrose Kern, Australia
‘I have a small green mouse. My Mom bought it for me in Paris when she was pregnant with me. “Paris” has been to every competition I have done over the years. He is very special to me and a reminder of the support from my Mom.’ – Amber Mitchell-Knight, Australia
‘My mum has been at every performance and will be coming to Toronto with me.’ – Jade Marquez, Australia
‘I have a stuffed pig keychain that I keep on my dance bag. I’ve had it on my bag for a long time and it makes me happy.’ – Rachel Ng, Canada
‘I have a hair scrunchie that was given to me by one of my good friends when I did gymnastics. I used to wear it to gymnastics practice and said it was my good luck scrunchie as I always had a good practice while wearing it. This lucky scrunchie has continued to provide me with luck in the dance studio and will be travelling with me to the competition.’ – Alyssa Churchill, Canada
