Well the big night has been and what a tremendous sense of pride we all feel for what the children achieved. This was definitely a powerful context for personal development, we all felt the fear and did it anyway. Children learned to dance, practice box steps and grapevines and memorised routines and left and right! Quite an achievement for the many reluctant dancers amongst us. The students that performed A Midsummer Night's Dream had to commit their lines to memory, practice enunciation, inflection and learn to stay in role and portray their character. Splitting the play between two separate days was also challenging but necessary to expose as many students to the stage as we could manage.
It is pleasing that the majority of our students accepted the challenge , used the taught strategies to manage the anxious moments and survived to feel a sense of pride in what they achieved. Trust me when the curtain came down, the excitement and celebration was unbelievably chaotic but so much fun! Thank you so much for the support, selling over 430 seats was a surprise to us but certainly made it all worthwhile.
In the words of Railyn " This was the best day of my life!"
Making memories, we hope you enjoy the photos of the rehearsal, and the one video we managed to get from back stage.
