This was the 3rd year that we participated in Dance NZ Made, and again, we had a great time.
The event is held in Palmerston North, and focusses on Dance, unlike Stage Challenge which also includes Drama and set design elements. We entered 4 teams in the competition this year. Ms. de Croy choreographed 2 of the dance routines, both in a contemporary style, the Year 11-12 "Sensations" and the Year 12-13 "Darkness and Light". Travis Brown choreographed the boys' Hip Hop routine, entitled "Monsters of the Earth". Jamie Howatson followed in her Stage Challenge role as choreographer and put together, "Our Toy Story".
All the routines were well receieved by the audience as well as our competitors.
While we were unplaced in a competition of many, many schools and routines, the students all had a fantastic time and performed and behaved admirably.
