Maitland Area School

Maitland | Yorke Peninsula | South Australia

Danceathon 2013 proved a huge success, with a packed Performing Arts Centre full of students, staff and parents. The students danced with energy, enthusiasm and confidence (both on and off stage) and the choreographed class dances were a true testament to the skills of our choreographers. Behaviour and involvement was excellent all round with the student Tech Crew ensuring everything went smoothly.

Class dances

Classes put on some very entertaining dances which showcased the abilities of both the students and choreographers. A big thank you to Miss Koch (Year 7), Mrs McLean (Year 5/6S), Mrs Davies (Year 5/6D), Mrs Derrington ((Reception, 3/4MD) and our special parent choreographer Mrs Linke (Year 1, Year 2).
Dances included evil clowns, Men In Black (and aliens), Transformers, birds and butterflies, break-dancers and rappers.

Special effects

Fundraising from previous Danceathons has meant the SRC has been able to purchase equipment for the PAC, and we were very excited to try out our new laser lights (making amazing patterns everywhere) and new low-level fog machine. The low level was the height of the fog, not the volume!

Thank you Miss Secomb

A big shout out to our recently transferred Junior School music teacher Vanessa Secomb; you would have been so proud of the students and the way they're continuing your danceathon legacy.
