The Australian School of the Arts inaugural Arts Festival was held on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 November 2017.
The festival, which featured performances by over 250 of our ASTA Dance and Drama Academy students, was a great success and we look forward to expanding and showcasing additional groups and performances in 2018.
Our Dance Academy ensembles showcased their great versatility in items including hip hop, jazz, contemporary, acrobatic dance and more. The winners of our Middle College Choreography competition were also featured at this event.
The Drama Academy performers presented three very different pieces of theatre. The Year 7 and 8 Musical Theatre group sang and danced their way into everyone’s hearts with their production of Beauty and the Beast Jr. The Year 7 and 8 Acting group performed a modern interpretation of Antigone, highlighting their excellent use of dialogue and emotions. And last, but certainly not least, the Year 1-6 group displayed some wonderful characterisation and storytelling in their performance of The Wizard of Oz.
