Per­for­mance on wheels

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A per­for­mance on wheels wowed au­di­ences at J Rock.

Stu­dents from Ko­hia Ter­race School took to the stage in wheel­chairs for part of their act at the event on July 3.

J Rock is a pri­mary and in­ter­me­di­ate school ver­sion of the Stage Chal­lenge.

Twelve-year-old Ko­hia Ter­race School stu­dent Clau­dia Chaney re­lies on a wheel­chair so her able­bod­ied class­mates joined her in their own for one of the dances, as re­ported in the Cen­tral Leader, July 3.

Teacher Helen Martin says the idea came from the tele­vi­sion show Glee.

The theme for the stu­dent’s per­for­mance was fit­ting in at a new school.

J Rock is non-com­pet­i­tive but the school re­ceived awards for sound­track, drama, chore­og­ra­phy, and per­for­mance.

Show hit: Clau­dia Chaney, cen­tre, and her Ko­hia Ter­race School class­mates per­form their wheel­chair dance at J Rock.
