Just Dance 2017
On Saturday 17 June, Sheldon College presented their annual dance extravaganza, Just Dance. Performances featured students from the ASTA Dance Academy, ASTA Professionals Program, Classroom Dance, the Senior College Choreography Competition and the Senior College Musical, Mary Poppins. The 2017 Prefects and selected Staff also joined in to compete in a dance-off. A range of dance genres and styles were displayed including jazz, ballet, contemporary, lyrical and hip hop.
The event was proudly brought home to the Sheldon Event Centre for the first time this year, as part of the College’s 20 Year Celebrations. Previous Dance Captains, who have been responsible for shaping and leading the dance program at Sheldon College, were invited back to enjoy the show and 2015 Alumnus, Travis Johnson, spoke on their behalf about the way in which dance, and teaching dance, has impacted his life beyond school.
The annual 'Get Dancing' Award, in memory of Chloe Saunders, was presented to Year 6 student Elise McKillop during the Evening Show. This award is presented to a Sheldon College student who demonstrates, beyond everything else, a passion for dance.
