Limelight: Talented Dance Program

On Thursday August 25 our Talented Dance Program students performed in this year's Step into the Limelight festival, which celebrates creative and performing arts in ACT public schools.

This year's festival was an arena spectacular in which each piece centred around the theme of 'Stories' and was held at the AIS. The TDP group's performance, an energetic and technical jazz piece entitled 'Hansel and Gretel: A Sweet Revenge,' was chosen to close the show, which was an indication of the high level of the performance and of the regard in which organisers held it.

All dancers are to be congratulated on their hard work and efforts during preparations for this performance, their exemplary behaviour during the long day of rehearsal and their exceptional performance during the show. Well done, dancers, you were an absolute credit to the Talented Dance Program and Erindale College.

Last Friday (5th August) Erindale College entered 2 teams in the ACT Oztag gala day. Canberra turned on the weather for one of the best days of winter. Both our boys and girls teams were perfectly behaved demonstrating excellent sportsmanship throughout the day. The boys cruised through the day undefeated not being challenged until the final where they had to come from behind to win.

The girls managed to also go through the day undefeated only to bomb the lead in the semi-final resulting in extra time. Luckily they were able to score in sudden death to set up a final with our old rivals Lake G. Somehow the girls managed to find themselves in extra time again after leading 3-1 with 4 minutes to go. The resilience and determination of our football girls is amazing and once again they performed in the clutch situations. That continues their unbeaten run at any Rugby code or variation this year.

Both teams were undefeated and crowned ACT Champions.
