Se­ri­ous fans

Benalla Ensign - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - By Si­mon Rup­pert

Benalla P-12 Col­lege years 10 and 11 VET Dance stu­dents and 12 Year 9 com­mu­nity ser­vice stu­dents re­cently had the op­por­tu­nity to take part in The Rub­ber Soul Bea­tles Show at BPACC.

The show was pre­sented as part of Se­nior Cit­i­zens week and the the­atre was packed with some se­ri­ous Bea­tles fans.

The Benalla stu­dents com­bined, and after only three re­hearsals, put on an ex­cit­ing rock and roll dance rou­tine to the tune Twist and Shout, then danced among the crowd and fi­nally, got the au­di­ence on its feet.

Stu­dents were then in­vited to join the band on stage . . . with ‘‘Paul’’ pro­vid­ing much en­cour­age­ment and pos­ing for pho­tos with them.

The stu­dents had been trained by Melinda Pen­treath of Mel-o-drama Stu­dio, who takes the Vet Dance class and the Year 9 Dance class at the col­lege.

The stu­dents’ in­volve­ment was or­gan­ised by Chris­tine Glynn and Ste­fanie Arend­shorst, who thanked ev­ery­one who helped to make it hap­pen.

‘‘Thank you to Tracey Hooper and Jess Beaton from Com­mu­nity Health, and Benalla Bus Lines for spon­sor­ing the trans­port and the stu­dents in­volved for their com­mit­ment to the com­mu­nity pro­gram,’’ Ms Arend­shorst said.
