The second time’s the charm.

Or at least it was for Prince Rupert’s own Karlie Fudger, a member of the Dance Academy of Prince Rupert.

On Friday, April 22, during the Pacific Northwest Music Festival where the prestigious yearly competition attracts the best young musicans and dancers to Terrace for the weekend, Karlie Fudger was asked to re-compete her lyrical solo.

Fudger was then re-adjudicated against the very best in many other arts disciplines such as piano, vocal, harp, speech and guitar for ages 12 and under.

The next evening during the festival-ending gala, Fudger was announced as the overall winner of the junior scholarship category.

She was awarded the Munson Family Scholarship, worth $250, for her efforts.

“This award is a great honour and achievement and a true testament to the hard work and dedication she has applied to her dance training at the academy,” said Dance Academy of Prince Rupert executive Karla Mackereth last week.

Earlier in March, the Dance Academy took home 16 trophies at the Prince George Dance Festival.
