Dance Showcase 2017

Energy levels were high and feet were sparkling as 120 children took to the stage in this year’s Dance Showcase. Dancers in Year 3—Year 11 wowed their audience at The Arlington Arts Centre with a magical programme of dance from ballet, tap and acro to Bollywood and contemporary. Seven months of intensive rehearsals certainly paid off — performances were confident and polished and the dancers clearly took real pride and pleasure in entertaining their audience.

Several budding young choreographers had an opportunity to create their own dances for the show and their pieces were inspirational. The backstage and technical teams, comprised of girls in Year 10—Year 13, ran an incredibly professional and slick show.

‘It was great getting experience on a professional stage and having fun with my friends’ Annabelle (Year 9)

‘Being in the Dance Show made me feel happy!’ Alaina (Year 7)
