Towards the end of July, the Moreton Bay College Dance Troupes took to stage for the first time after a year off from competitive competition due to the pandemic. The DanceLife Unite competition held at St. John’s Anglican College on Saturday 24 July did not disappoint, with our dancers taking to the stage with enthusiasm and grace, coming away with outstanding results.

Primary Dance Troupe received both 2nd and 4th place with their Jazz and Lyrical routines respectively in the ‘Any Style’ section. The Senior Dance Troupe were in a class of their own when they took out 1st place in both the Lyrical and Contemporary troupe sections. The Junior A Dance Troupe team came in behind the Seniors, taking out 2nd and 3rd place respectively in each of the sections.

The success continued as the Junior A Dance Troupe team dominated the Secondary High School Jazz section, taking out 1st place in front of the Seniors who came in 4th. A particular highlight of the day was the exceptional performance of our newly formed Junior B Dance Troupe who worked so diligently throughout the lead-up to the competition, earning them a Highly Commended for their Jazz routine.

It’s safe to say that the Moreton Bay College Dance Troupes are in fine form after such a long break from the competitive arena and continue to present exceptional work that surpasses their competitors in such unknown and trying times. The students and teachers are looking forward to the 2021 Dance Showcase in Term 4 on Friday 15 October at 6.30pm in the Music Centre. Be sure to save the date to witness the fine form of our College dancers!
