WARRNAMBOOL’S aerial hoops squad will put their styles to the test against the best in the country at this Saturday’s Miss Lyra Australia National Championships.
The south-west based studio, run by instructor Jem Dyer, will have five members travel to Melbourne’s Thornbury Theatre to show their talents.
Amarli Frankel and Chloe Mutton, both 12, will pair up in the junior duo category, while Matilda Allen, 14, will compete solo in the junior class.
Mollie Buckley, 19, and Bonnie Williamson, 16, will test their aerobatic hoops skills in the adult category.
Dyer said it was a first for the studio to feature in the national competition, after strong finishes in the audition faze of the event.
“It’s a massive achievement for the studio to have five girls in the national competition,” she said.

“We have one of the biggest numbers of girls from one studio participating and it’s a credit to the direction we are heading in.”
Dyer said she was confident the girls would bring their best to the competition and believes the studio was a high chance of securing high placings at its first crack at the nationals.
