Dramatic Arts

The Dramatic Arts department has been buzzing over the last couple of months, with some unique experiences and major successes. Our Year 10 Dance class enjoyed a professional ballet workshop with Queensland Ballet dancer, Kathleen Doody, before going to the Queensland Ballet’s performance of “Romeo and Juliet”. The students were left feeling inspired and motivated.

Over the September holidays, our incredible Dance Company travelled down to Sydney to compete in the Dance Life Unite National Finals. The girls burnt the floor, winning the contemporary and musical sections and placing second and third in lyrical and jazz. While in Sydney, the team also enjoyed some extra special dance experiences including, seeing “West Side Story” at the Opera House and participating in dance workshops at Brent St Performing Arts.

Now, all of our curriculum and co-curricular students are busily preparing our Department’s night of nights, “Dance Showcase”.  There will be 2 shows, Thursday 24 and Friday 25 October. Tickets are on sale and selling fast via Flexischools. This event does not disappoint, so be sure to secure yourself a seat before it’s too late!
