Houston is a teenager with a serious passion for dance. Her recent success at the World Hip Hop International Championships in Las Vegas, America, was the culmination of hundreds of hours of training and preparation. Representing New Zealand at the World Championships was a dream come true for Houston and her crew ‘Duchesses’ finishing 2nd with a silver medal in the very competitive Varsity Division, which showcased the creative talents of dancers from over sixty countries.
The Bobby Stafford Bush Foundation helped Houston to achieve her dream of dancing for one of the top crews in the world. The Foundation supported her in the early stages to get to the audition at the world renowned Palace Dance Studio. This encouragement has given Houston the opportunity to grow as a dancer, to share her passion for dance with others and to pursue a goal that may not have otherwise been possible. She is forever grateful for the financial funding she has received.
