Inspired Stages

The following learners represented the “Inspired Stages” workshop where they were treated to South African professionals (Kurt Darren to name a few) who inspired them in their various artistic crafts.   We are proud of  Allan Stanley,  Matthew dos Santos, Zoe Thomas, Leandre Wilson  who specialised in Dance;  Sasha Damons,  Siphosethu Mfazwe, Carla Woolf, Zoe Blight and Brittney Jeptha who specialised in vocals.  It was a very well received and exciting workshop for our learners who were energised by their time there. Thanks to Mrs Jurgens for allowing this initiative to take place.

High School Jam

HJAM-13 HJAM-15 HJAM-26 HJAM-30We are so proud of our highly talented cast and crew of the HIGH SCHOOL JAM.  Our school entered for the first time ever and the judges felt it was the BEST first time performance ever!!! Karl Wastie was left speechless but managed to breath one word which was “WOWZER!”.

Congratulations to Mrs Jurgens  who spent many days compiling the songs (cut to an exact time allocated for the competitors) as well as creating an orchestra performance (underscoring many many rehearsals) which all described as truly ‘professional’.  Many thanks to Ms Meyer who gave up so much of her free time to rehearse with her dancers who performed magically on the night.    Also a huge thank you to Mr Botes and Mrs Bruwer for the hours of practice getting the choir to perform beautifully and lastly to Ms Kotze, Ms Granger and Ms Correia for their help wherever possibly needed.

All in all a momentous first time moment on the Grandwest Arena BIG stage for all our performers.
