Dramatic Arts

It has been a great opportunity and joy-filled season in the Dramatic Arts department!

Our Mini, Junior and Senior Dance Companies had a fabulous, shortened competition season at ‘Everybody Sing and Dance Now’, ‘Phoenix Online Dance Competition’ and ‘The Australian Pinnacle Dance Challenge’. The teams rose to the challenge, performing beautifully and representing Genesis very well. Their placings are evidence of their grit, passion and talent:

  • 6 x 1st
  • 9 x 2nd
  • 2 x 3rd
  • 2 x HC

Our dedicated performing arts students took up the challenge of creating incredible online entries in the categories of music, short film, costume design, dance and monologue in the Shakefest competition. Out of our 11 entries, Liza, Cate and Caitlyn created submissions in costume design, monologue and dance, which earned them a place at the State Finals.

The inaugural ‘Rise Up 2020’ event was a raging success, involving our Primary and Secondary students creating their own dance works and competing for some exciting prizes. The entrants, Mini, Junior and Senior Dance Companies, Show Choir and Senior Dance class performed to both a live and virtual audience, and shone on stage in what was a memorable two evenings of dance.

As the year begins to draw to a close, the celebrations have begun. Our Junior and Senior Dance Companies enjoyed a special breakup dinner and our Show Choir enjoyed a celebratory afternoon at Bullocky’s Rest, bringing closure to the year that was.

We consider ourselves so blessed to have enjoyed a ‘normal-ish’ few months and I wish to applaud each student on their commitment to their performing arts endeavours.

“You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy.” Psalm 30:11
