The performances were choreographed and performed under the direction of a specialist dance teacher, Miss Prue, with all classes from Kindergarten through to Year 6 participating.
Students focussed on the performing, composing and appreciating aspects of dance. The program followed curriculum guidelines with the students learning that through dance they can communicate moods, feelings, and ideas.
Principal Helen Bourne told News Of The Area, “It is through expressive, formal and sensory qualities that a story begins to unfold.”
The Spectacular started with the beginning of Disney will Mickey Mouse and moving through Pinnochio and Olaf.
The Cars then made a dramatic appearance as students were dressed in cardboard cars. Woody from Toy Story also made an appearance as well as Dory and Nemo.
“Of course Dory couldn’t remember her name as she has short term memory loss and Bruce was reminded that fish are friends not food,” she said.
The senior students moved into Pirates and Mary Poppins.
The pirates reminded the audience that if they didn’t applaud accordingly they might walk the plank.
The culmination was a 55 troupe dancing to ‘Step in Time’.
The school hall was full for both nights and with the costumes, music and lights both students and audience were bopping along through all dances.
