Dancers just spectacular

 

TWELVE talented dancers from Leongatha Secondary College showcased their skills in the Victorian State School Spectacular in Melbourne recently.

They had rehearsed since the start of the year and shared an incredible experience on stage.

“It was amazing when they walked into Hisense Arena and saw the set up,” dance teacher Linda Hamilton said.

“They thought the set up of Grease at school was good. This was brilliant.”

Dancers ranged from students in years 8 to 12, and rehearsed after school and at lunchtime, on weekends in four regional rehearsals in Carrum Downs.

Around 80 schools were involved in the show and the energy throughout the performance was intense.
“The vibe and the atmosphere were incredible. It was amazing to be on stage with so many people,” dancer Nikki Stockdale said.

Year 9 coordinator Sheena Cumming and maths teacher Bron Webster supported students throughout the performance and helped create costumes.

“If you want to challenge yourself, it’s a great idea to audition,” dancer Tilly Johnson said.

The Victorian State School Spectacular will be televised on Channel 7 at 7pm on December 3.
