The Blue Book SACE Dance Examination Performance

Last Wednesday and Thursday evening, 'The Blue Book' production was presented in the Michael Murray Centre to warm and supportive audiences. The theme explored ‘everything blue’, well nearly everything blue. This notion was expressed by dances that related to a blue mood, blue shoes, blue art works, blue elements of our planet and blue music, just to mention a few.

Dancers from Years 9 to 12 performed in a highly professional manner, to communicate the ideas that explored this colour and the relationship it has to aspects of our life. The symbolism of the colour blue, the mood it provokes and the many items that are blue in the world around us were other themes in this show. The wonderful Stage 2 Dancers, who were examined by SACE on the second performance night, came on the blue journey and together with the other class groups helped create the production.

We hope the audience connected with the works in some way and enjoyed the talent and hard work of our dance students. The creative process was a lengthy but rewarding one, with ideas and input generously given by the dancers. I commend all dance students involved on their commitment, openness and trust, and I am very proud of every one of them. I would sincerely like to thank the many people who have helped bring this show to the stage as it certainly takes a collective group effort.
