400 en­joy gym show

The Leader (Tasman) - - NEWS -

Par­ents and fam­i­lies packed Motueka’s Me­mo­rial Hall on Sun­day to watch the first com­bined gym­nas­tics and cir­cus dis­play of stu­dents from the Tas­man Gym­nas­tics Club and In­side Out Cir­cus.

Or­gan­ised by tu­tors Sa­man­tha Slade and Da­mara Sylvester, the per­for­mance drew about 400 peo­ple.

Sa­man­tha said they or­gan­ised the dis­play pri­mar­ily to give their stu­dents a chance to show off their skills to their par­ents.

‘‘It was a chance for them to put on some sparkles and have their five min­utes on stage.’’

The event also raised funds for the women to buy equip­ment, such as gym­nas­tic mats, for their pupils.
