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.

DANCE FOR SICK KIDS

We Raised $1,282 for Sick Kids!

Dance for Sick Kids (DFSK) is a 7-day dance challenge that raises vital funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities. Over 60,000 families with a seriously ill or injured child rely on Ronald McDonald House Charities in Australia each year – and they need our help! We think it’s important to support people when they’re in need so once again we set up a team and got fundraising!

Over the month of May leading up to the official DFSK week we held gold coin donation fundraisers including; Whacky Hair Week, Crazy Sock Week, PJ Week and Fancy Dress Week. Our students came to class dressed up and were so creative with their costumes, hair and sock designs. Many of our students also joined our fundraising team and did their own fundraising to contribute to the cause. Overall the Showtime HMS team raised $1,282 and Australia wide the event raised a massive $802,807 which equals 5017 nights that a family will be able to stay with their child at a Ronald McDonald House.

It was so humbling to see all of our families get involved and we can't wait to be a part of it all again next year.

   

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.

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.
