Hang about for a fun class act

A LEGAL hitch may have denied them the chance to showcase their skills at this month’s Arts in Concert event, but Ben Venue Primary School’s senior dance group finally completed their act in front of classmates at the Starmaker final.

The dance group’s performance on Wednesday was originally refused because of occupational health and safety concerns.

Students, pictured, had been expected to dangle from suspended silk rope, known as tissue, but were told at the last minute it would be too dangerous.

Ben Venue’s Deputy Principal and choreographer Wally O’Hara said it was pleasing to finish the performance after months of dedication.

“These girls, all 16 of them, have been practicing really hard since early in term one,” he said.

The different colours of the ribbons represented the changing seasons.

Ben Venue’s Starmaker final featured 14 acts including dance routines and musical solos.

Judges had selected students for the final based on their performances in earlier rounds of the competition.
