GEORGE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS - The George High dance department's show, The Element, is a fascinating voyage of discovery. It's about finding yourself and unveiling your personal powers.
When the performance of The Element drew to a close at the Outeniqua Transport Museum in George last Tuesday evening, there was a stunned silence, followed by a roar of appreciation from the audience. Parents, teachers and dance appreciators alike were bowled over.
Inspired in part by the daring spirit of the learners, the choreographers William Constance, Bradley Zeelie and Ronae Fortuin were fuelled to produce a masterpiece of dance and acrobatics driven by emotive music that added to an evening of seriousness and joy.
Norman Christians, George High head of department, said The Element offered the learners an opportunity to present to their families and the public the result of a year's hard work, dedication and progress.
The production is proudly danced by Grade 10 to 12 learners. "The production is a thrilling adventure of high athleticism, agility and storytelling in contemporary dance, beautifully capturing the harmony of air or the relaxed nature of earth, the unpredictability of water and the passion of fire," said Christians.
