I hope everyone who attended the Easter Workshops with Rachel Sheil enjoyed themselves. Unfortunately the numbers were quite low despite interest shown. If anyone has any other suggestions on holiday activities they would like to see available in the studio, please let me know!
This year’s Choreography Competition will take place this Saturday 17th April at 1-3pm. This is an opportunity for all students in Dance Club to try their hand at creating their own routine(s). Students can enter as many pieces as they like in any of the categories. These include Solo, Duet and Group pieces. Each piece must be between 1 minute and approximately 1 min 30 seconds in length. Trophies or medals will be awarded to the successful candidates in each category (sole, duet, group) in two age groups: Under 11 yrs and over 11 years. Successful students will get to perform their piece at the end of year showcase!! Students not participating can also attend to watch or support their friends. Entrance and admittance to the Choreography Competition will cost €2 per students and each student will be entered into a draw for a uniform item of their choice! Good luck to all participating students!!
SUPER TROOP COMPETITION
New for 2010! On Saturday 24th April from 1pm-3pm a competition will be held to find the Super Troop of 2010. All students may enter in an audition style competition where I will teach a short routine which the entrants will then perform in a group in front of a panel of judges. The successful applicants will get to perform the finale piece with me on BOTH nights of the 2010 Showcase. Students wishing to enter should be available for rehearsals between 1pm and 2.30pm each Saturday until the show (1st, 8th, 15th & 26th May). There is a €5 entrance fee and proceeds will go towards expenses and costumes for the Super Troop!
