With just three weeks to go the Mystery Inc. En Pointe annual dance show is taking shape and promising to be as entertaining as we have come to expect.
Rehearsals for Whitianga dance show well underway
The entire crew at the studio are rehearsing day in and day out. From pre-schoolers right through to senior students, who are also busy with school exams. This year's show is titled Mystery Inc. and themed on the popular animated television show franchise Scooby Doo and Mystery Incorporated. This years show has a team of teenagers and their dog in an adventure – dancing and solving mysteries along the way.
Coordination is key to the shows success
A student base of approximately 120 students will take to the stage, so co-ordination is no mean feat.
The dance based show will feature all the studio's dance styles and age groups as they dance their way through the Mystery Inc. adventure. My team ad I choreograph the performance to showcase all the dance styles from pre-school ballet, to hip hop and lyrical dance. It's always fantastic to see all of my students up on stage performing to our great local audience.
