BALLERINAS PUT ON SHOW IN DAMPIER.
Terre Rouge Ballet performed their adaptation of the classical tale of Cinderella for parents at the Dampier Community Hall last month.
From little dance and performance students aged three to four years through to the experienced dancers en pointe, all delighted in telling the fairytale through dance.
Beautiful costuming and artful choreography across classical, character and contemporary ballet conveyed the storyline and demonstrated the hard work of students over the previous months. With the guidance of their teachers, students were transformed into cats, mice, courtiers, wedding guests, soldiers and royalty with accompanying music that spread across genres.
With the focus on the children, students had a wonderful time and teachers and the committee were commended on all aspects of the production.
Terre Rouge is now preparing students for London-based Royal Academy of Dance presentations and examinations.
Principal teacher Michele Cleaver-Wilkinson will hold workshops with students in the coming weeks to ensure they are ready to dance in this environment.
This has been an exciting year for Terre Rouge Ballet, which is run by a committee of volunteers.
The single-purpose dance studio has a full-time teacher.
This provision of services in the Dampier community makes for consistency for students.
Hardworking students displaying their talents were Breanna Entwistle, 14, Alex Lally, 15, Jazz Van Dongen, 13, Jaimee Bardsley, 12, Tane Wann, 12, Janaya Walsh, 13, Sarah Prisk, 16 and Tilly Reaburn, 14.
