It has been an amazingly busy couple of weeks, hampered somewhat by a recalcitrant computer that required a visit to the computer doctor to get it going again (sound stopped working – not good for dance teaching!!!)
First of all SEUSS!
The show was an immense success and the students outdid themselves. Seussical is unusual in that it combines song and dance almost all the way through the whole show, which can be hard on young children and our rays of sunshine were awesome. In two years there will be another lower school musical!
Secondly, Spotlights: grades one and four have been preparing for upcoming spotlights in April and May. Each class is looking at ways of combining song, dance and drama, with lots of student input. Dance from when dance took PE time has been revisited and the students have chosen movements and sequences from then to create pieces for performance when they come back from the break.
Finally, PYPX is taking shape, with classes similarly working on song, dance, drama, speech, including lighting concepts to bring their message home. Volunteers from all the classes are also working on parts of a culminating piece which will feature all grade six students by the time it is fully assembled.
For those who celebrate – have a lovely Easter and a wonderful break! See you in April!
