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.
