Troupe’s high energy makes for Crazy Times
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.
