Well over one hundred dancers took to the stage last week as part of Avondale College's Dance Showcase, 'Encore'. The two-night programme saw an outstanding array of talent across a variety of dance genres, including contemporary, hip-hop, lyrical, jazz, K-Pop, Pasifika, African and more!
The evenings were a vibrant celebration of dance and showcased not just the work that has taken place in the classroom this year, but also 11 co-curricular groups, and items from guest choreographers Christopher Ofanoa, Xavier Breed, Baileigh Greaves, Desney Fritz, Otis Donovan-Herring, Kate Littlejohn and Gemma-Jayde Naidoo, as well as a high-energy performance by the Saintz Dance Academy.
"Despite the inconsistent year, Ms Southgate and I were absolutely blessed to share the positive highlights that have brought us joy and a whole lot of laughter!" said Director of Dance, Ms Santana Schmidt. "I will always and forever be that person cheering “ENCORE!” as our Dance students hit the stage!"
