The VCE Music performance night was a wonderful night to showcase all our hard work for the year in front of our family and friends. Tim and I both had to put on a 25 minute performance of all the songs we are performing for our end of year Music exam. The Year 11 Students also performed several songs in a range of styles. It was a great way to get feedback and have a fun night with friends showcasing our talents.
VCE Dance Night is a culmination of hard work and time put in by the Year 12 dance students to present a solo dance work. Earlier this year we had presented our Technique Solos that focused on physical skills and body actions such as flexibility, strength, elevation etc. On Wednesday the 5thof September we prepared two solo dances, Technique and Composition; the Composition being a dance that tells a story. The process of choreographing two solo dance works entirely by yourself with help from others, is laborious to say the least. There are times where nothing creative comes, and a week's worth of dance moves are scrapped, in which all of this effort is to prepare for an end of year Performance Examination, taking place on Oct 10th at Dancescape Studios. I can happily say on behalf of our teacher, Ms. Bond, our class displayed the best renditions of our dance solos this year, all in preparation for our Performance Exam in early October.

We have recently started a Guitar Ensemble for our enthusiastic guitar players. Led by guitar teacher Shane Ryall, the ensemble meets each Tuesday at 1:15pm in the Music Centre. Playing as part of a guitar ensemble is a wonderful way for students to rapidly improve their playing, listening and music reading skills.
Our Musical Theatre Club is another new ensemble that has formed now our fabulous production is over. We will be rehearsing weekly on Fridays at 1:15pm in the Music Centre. The group will be learning to sing in harmony parts and add movements and dance routines, in a Glee Club or Pitch Perfect style. We are currently learning the beautiful "Million Dreams" from The Greatest Showman and will be adding new songs to our repertoire.
Thank you to the 40 plus students that auditioned for our upcoming Christmas play last week.
We were blown away by the turnout and each and every one of you did an amazing job.
