Christmas Pageants 2023

In 2022 we welcomed back the Armadale Christmas parade which had taken a break for the past 2 years due to covid, however now it had moved to a Saturday evening meaning it was a very busy day for the Showtime HMS team. We had two groups of performers with one at the Armadale parade and the other performing at the Perth Alinta Christmas Pageant.

For many of our students this was their first ever Christmas pageant performance so it was a very exciting time! Our students dressed in a range of Christmas themed costumes and danced down the streets of Armadale & Perth.

Congratulations to all that participated and we hope it got you in the Christmas spirit ready for the holiday season ahead.

We were lucky to get a lot of screen time on Channel 7's presentation of the Perth Pageant, if you missed it you can watch below.

Nepal Festival Perth

On Saturday 26th November we were invited to perform at the Nepal Festival Perth which was held in Forrest Chase, Perth. The festival is run by the Nepalese community in Perth in order to bring different cultures together as well as educate everyone about the Nepalese culture. There were many performances from different groups and cultures around Perth and we were so pleased to be invited to represent the Australian community.

Our intermediate lyrical class performed their concert piece as well as one of our senior students, Braydee Audrain, performed her hip hop competition solo. The audience filled Forrest Chase and the stage was projected on to large screens for all to see. It was a very exciting performance for our students and we hope to be invited back in the future.

Own Choreography Competitions

With our Mid Year Concert cancelled and our Music Video finished we decided to bring back our private dance competition from 2020, Show Struck Dance Quest. This year we invited our friends at Academy Dance & Elegance to join us and invited Brooke, former owner of Star Struck Dance Studio to be the judge.

Students competed using their own choreography or their teacher choreographed competition routines. We divided the categories to ensure results were fair for everyone and the judging criteria varied depending on if the routine was self-choreographed or taught by a teacher. We saw some amazing routines filled with creativity and entertaining performances from both studios. We are very proud of all students who got up there and showed us their love for dance with the results they achieved.

Some of our students then went and entered their self-choreographed routines in to the State Dance Association Student Choreography Online Competition. We filmed their live performances at Show Struck and submitted them for the online competition.

We Made A Music Video

2022 started with a lot of uncertainties as Covid finally hit Perth. We were hit with new restrictions and an unknown time frame on when they would be removed. Due to this we made the tough decision to cancel our Mid Year Concert for 2022 and instead just have one huge celebration for our 25th Birthday at the End-of-Year Concert.

So now we had all this time on our hands we decided to do something new and different, we were going to make a music video! After a lot of brainstorming and meetings amongst our teachers we decided on doing two different music videos, one to represent our Ballet, Lyrical & Contemporary classes, and another for our Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Musical Theatre & Acro classes.

All of our students started learning routines in their regular classes over the next 5 weeks in preparation for recording day. This was still a time of masks and venue restrictions so we made the decision that filming would be done outdoors to ensure these restrictions didn't affect the day, although it would always be a juggle with mother nature and many students asked "What happens if it rains?". The answer being "The show must go on!".

Fortunately we were blessed with absolutely perfect weather on the day of filming. We chose to film nearby at Champion Lakes so we could utilise the beautiful scenery - we even had a few ducks make an appearance.

The day was such a success and so fun for everyone. We filmed both videos on the one day, from 8am to 2pm at two different parts of the lake. Family members of the students came a long with picnic blankets and watched the day unfold and their children in action. It was a great experience for everyone, the younger students watched in awe as the seniors and staff performed their routines and every single person cheered on the juniors with enthusiasm.

I would like to say a special thank you to Miss Gemma & Miss Tylah for choreographing and directing the "Home" routine for our Ballet, Lyrical & Contemporary students, they put so much time and effort in to this. To the CLRA committee for opening up the hub to give our students access to a bathroom and parents access to tea and coffee. Payton for assisting with filming and directing and also Keith & Ryan for filming via drone.

We are so excited to present our two videos which can be viewed on our YouTube channel and below. We even made a fun behind the scenes/blooper reel so you can see what a great day we all had. As we celebrate our 25th year this year it was really lovely to do something different and have these memories forever.

"Home" - Our Ballet, Lyrical & Contemporary Video.

"Never Miss A Chance T0 Dance" - Our Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Musical Theatre & Acro Video.

Alinta Christmas Pageant 2021

In 2020 we took a break from performing in the Christmas pageant due to Covid-19 but this year we were back!

Saturday December 4th marked the occasion. The city of Perth was all lit up and families were lined up in the streets to watch the performances. A select few of our Showtime students participated and were dressed up in Christmas colours, a mix of sparkly green and red costumes. Dancing to Christmas carols down the streets of Perth is a great way to get in to the Christmas spirit and we love being a part of the Alinta Christmas Pageant each year.

We would like to congratulate our students on how well they danced and represented Showtime HMS.

Mid Year Concert 2021; Live Love Dance!

Students had been working hard all semester towards their mid year concert to have a spanner thrown in the works and a lockdown hit us 5 days prior to our scheduled concert date. We pushed on and continued our classes at home on Zoom as the lockdown was due to lift the morning of concert day. Sadly even though the lockdown was lifted the restrictions still meant we were not able to hold our concert on Sat 3rd July and were forced to reschedule.

Going in to school holidays this meant students had to keep practicing at home and weren’t able to have a final practice together before going on stage but you never would have picked it watching how well they performed. After 2 weeks break we were able to hit the stage on Sun 18th July at John Curtin Theatre. We are so proud of all the students who smashed it on stage after a 2 week break and some classes having to adapt their routines due to a few students being unable to make the rescheduled performance date. It really shows how committed and passionate our Showtime HMS students are.

Congratulations to the students who received achievement awards below:

End of Year Concert; 2020 A Year to Remember

After a year of setbacks, disappointments, and bumps in the road we finally made it to the end of the year! After having to cancel our mid-year concert our staff and students were more than excited to hold our end of year concert and commemorate a tough but triumphant year for us all.

Both our Junior and Senior concerts were held at John Curtin Theatre in Fremantle where friends and family came to watch our students showcase their hard work from throughout the year. Everyone performed exceptionally well, and we are more than proud of their efforts at the annual event.
