Dance for Sick Kids Raises $1,699 for Ronald McDonald House Charities!

The Dance for Sick Kids (DFSK) event recently concluded with a remarkable achievement: raising $1,699 in funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities. This 7-day dance challenge aimed to provide crucial support to over 60,000 families with seriously ill or injured children in Australia. Through a month of engaging activities and creative fundraising efforts, the Showtime HMS team and their students showcased their unwavering commitment to making a difference.

In the lead-up to the official DFSK week, the Showtime HMS team organized various gold coin donation fundraisers. Whacky Hair Week, Crazy Sock Week, PJ Week, and Rainbow Dress Week brought excitement and creativity to the cause, as students embraced the opportunity to express themselves while raising funds. Many students also joined the team's efforts and conducted their own fundraising campaigns, contributing to the overall success.

The collective efforts of the Showtime HMS team and the wider community yielded an astounding total of $440,723 raised during the DFSK event nationwide. This substantial amount will provide 2,754 nights of accommodation for families, ensuring they can remain close to their children during challenging times. The impact of these funds extends beyond mere shelter, offering families a supportive environment where they can find solace, connect with others facing similar challenges, and access necessary resources.

The overwhelming success of the DFSK event has left a lasting impression. The Showtime HMS team, along with their students and families, express deep gratitude to everyone who contributed and supported this worthy cause. With plans already underway for next year's DFSK event, the collective goal is to build upon this year's achievements and continue making a positive impact in the lives of families in need.

At Showtime HMS Performing Arts, we are proud to announce that our Grade 5 Jazz and Grades 4 & 5 Ballet students recently took their State Dance Association exams, and we couldn't be prouder of their achievements! All of our students performed beautifully and passed their exams, which is a testament to their hard work and dedication.

Our jazz and ballet exam classes are designed to help our students improve their dance skills, strength, and flexibility. We work on a range of technical exercises, and each exercise is developed to help our students improve their dance technique. In addition to learning the theory of their chosen dance style, students also learn correct terminology and anatomy. The exams themselves require students to perform multiple different dances, which showcase their versatility as dancers.

We are thrilled to report that all of our Grade 5 Jazz and Grades 4 & 5 Ballet students passed their State Dance Association exams with flying colours. We are incredibly proud of their hard work and dedication, and we believe that their achievements reflect the quality of education that we provide at Showtime HMS Performing Arts. Our students put in countless hours of practice to perfect their skills, and it is truly inspiring to see their efforts pay off.

We are also excited to announce that our Jazz grades 2 & 4 students will take their exams later this year. We have no doubt that they will do just as well as their peers and continue to make us proud.

At Showtime HMS Performing Arts, we believe that it is important to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of our students. All students who receive a mark of 75% (Highly Commended/Honours/Honours with Distinction) and above are awarded a small gift at our end of year concert to acknowledge their hard work and achievements.

25th Anniversary Concert 2022

This year due to covid restrictions early on in the year we made the decision to not have a mid-year concert and only have one big end of year concert to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. The students were really eager to get on stage come December 17th and show their families and friends what they had been working on all year.

This year we decorated our photo wall with some silver celebration balloons and had all students, junior and senior, performing together in the one concert. It was a wonderful day and everyone performed so well. We finished the night with a bang, with confetti poppers during our finale dance which was kept a surprise from all the students just to make it even more fun. It was also a privilege to have one of our ex-teachers Bree Smith join us on stage singing the finale.
