Students Excel in State Dance Association Exams

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.

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.
