Performing Arts

Winter has been anything but cold in the Performing Arts Department!

Our students have been busy showcasing their talents within the Genesis community and beyond.

Our Dance Company enjoyed a series of successes, including:

  • placing in the Top 3 for all of their dances at the Australian Pinnacle Dance Challenge
  • being awarded best overall school at the Beenleigh Dance Eisteddfod
  • qualifying to compete at the Dance Life Unite Nationals competition in Sydney in October. The team are busily preparing for their Nationals rivalry!

A special congratulations to Alix Lampre, Sian Rosenberg, Ella Pinkstone-Reid, Caitlyn Brindley and Katerina Romanov for all completing vocational RAD Ballet exams within the last few weeks.

Our Drama students have also been busy, as they put on a spectacular production at the annual “A Night at the Theatre” event. Our Shakefest team members are also working hard in preparation for the Regional Finals competition coming up in a matter of days. Chookas students!

Our Show Choir and Events Choir enjoyed a unique and especially rewarding experience, as they performed a series of musical items for the residents at the Pine Woods Aged Care Facility. Both the students and the residents were so blessed.

Finally, all 180 of our curricular and co-curricular Dance students, ranging from Years 3-12 are working around the clock to prepare the spectacle that is “Dance Showcase 2019”! There will be 2 shows, Thursday 24 and Friday 25 October. Tickets are now on sale! Get in quick so you don’t miss out!

Congratulations to all of our performing arts students on an incredibly successful few weeks.
