Dollhouse is an 8-girl group from Liverpool and Menai.
Eight high-achieving dancing girls are determined to make Australia proud by winning this year’s
Hip Hop International World Championships title.
Liverpool group Dollhouse will represent Australia after it competed against teams from across the country and won.
Dollhouse, an 8-girl group from a Hoxton Park dance school, will compete in the Hip Hop International Championships
in the US in August.
Four of the girls, aged eight to 11, are from Glenda Yee School of Dance on Hoxton Park Rd at Prestons and the other
four are from Planetdance at Menai.
Under the direction of choreographer Glen Yee, 23, the girls have worked very hard to polish their routine and are set
for the big day in San Diego, California.
Dollhouse dancers are drawn from two dance schools in Hoxton Park and Menai.
“They’re young girls but incredibly talented, and with such a strong team behind them, they’re very well prepared
for the competition,” Ms Yee said.
Dancer Alana Mansour, 11, of Cecil Hills said their success thus far was a “dream come true” and all of the group was
excited and happy about what awaited them in San Diego.
Jamila Escobar, 10, of Liverpool couldn’t hide her excitement either.

“It’s quite a surprise we’re headed for this ultimate competition but it still hasn’t sunk in. We’re working very hard
at our routine and we hope to give it our best shot.
“Our friends in school are happy we’re in this international competition but many are sad we’ll be away for 10 days.”
No one can accuse the girls and their supporters of lacking optimism. They believe they can clinch the world title
and make Australia proud.
However the one thing they absolutely need at this time is funds to get the team to the competition.

The team is appealing to businesses and individuals, especially in greater western Sydney, to donate to their appeal.
“Not all the girls are from homes that can afford to send their child overseas. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,
and we won’t like to miss it. We’ll appreciate every cent,” Ms Yee said.
The Hip Hop World Championships are scheduled to begin at San Diego State University’s Viejas Arena on August 1
and conclude at Harrah’s Resort on August 9.
