Congratulations to our SJC Dance Troupe who placed 3rd at The Australian Pinnacle Dance Challenge! Sixteen students in Years 7 to 9 performed a contemporary routine at the competition on Saturday 10th October, for which they were awarded 84/100. The adjudicators commented the competition was very strong and there was only half a point between 2nd and 3rd place!
I would also like to give a special acknowledgement to Lani Geppert, Makala Kendall, Ariana Callaghan and Ella Porter. Last year I selected these Year 9 students to be the lead dancers and choreograph this dance work with me. They each worked on a section of choreography and dedicated many hours collaborating and developing the dance. Their work ethic has been outstanding. Unfortunately, Ella sustained an injury and therefore needed to leave the troupe earlier in the year; however, her contribution to the choreography is greatly valued.
Congratulations to every student in the troupe. Your passion, dedication and hard work resulted in you performing a dance that we can all be very proud of.
