Troupe’s high en­ergy makes for Crazy Times

Midwest Times - - THE EDGE ENTERTAINMENT -

Mid West par­ents might no­tice their chil­dren have a new flair for the per­form­ing arts af­ter the re­cent wrap-up of Perth-based dance com­pany Co3’s re­gional tour.

The dance troupe vis­ited schools to dis­cuss and teach con­tem­po­rary dance, and per­form a dance piece called Crazy Times spe­cially chore­ographed for Mid West stu­dents.

Af­ter the per­for­mance, stu­dents were taught high-en­ergy dance moves from the show, and cre­ated their own moves to add to the dance se­quence.

Ger­ald­ton Senior Col­lege teacher Jo Cor­lett said the ex­pe­ri­ence her stu­dents had with the chil­dren from Beach­lands Pri­mary School was en­joy­able.

“All the stu­dents and staff from Beach­lands Pri­mary, Ger­ald­ton Senior and vis­it­ing lo­cal dancers from All Things Dance thor­oughly en­joyed the con­tem­po­rary dance pre­sen­ta­tion,” Ms Cor­lett said.

“There were lots of pos­i­tive con­ver­sa­tions and dis­cus­sions about dance, art and mu­sic in­ter­pre­ta­tions.

“Ev­ery­one was very ex­cited and keen to join in the dance work­shops that fol­lowed.”

Co3’s re­gional dance project Crazy Times was as­sisted by the Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment’s arts fund­ing and ad­vi­sory body.
