Final Performance!

by Student on May 8, 2012

The spring performance on the 6th of May at the Mary Louis Academy was a  spectacular event. Beautiful little divas dancing in their amazing costumes in an ephemeral setting left the audience spellbound.  The last few days were very busy for the team getting all ends of the show together. From finishing production to transportation and installing, the team did it all.


In Anticipation

The audience waited in anticipation for the show to begin. The big tree upfront and the ‘rabbit hole’ on the curtain set the mood for what was yet to come.


Be Our Guest

The curtain opened with all the beautiful dancers on the stage. They performed to the number ‘Be Our Guest’  greeting all the guests in a beautiful forest setting.


Bippity Boppity Boo

The dancers danced to a Cinderella themed number ‘Bippity Boppity Boo’. A beautiful pumpkin was the highlighting feature which converted to Cinderella’s carriage with the swoosh of a wand!


Under the Sea

After Cinderella to Red Riding Hood,the dancers dressed as little mermaids with lots of fins and shells danced to ‘Under the Sea. Sea weed panels and blue lighting blended very well with the costumes  creating a beautiful aquatic environment.


Alice In Wonderland

In this Act the dancers danced to a many Alice In Wonderland numbers in a forest setting.Painted scenery panels served as a backdrop to tall trees and oversized flowers and mushrooms.  The sculptural cards created a unique “Alice” setting.


When You Wish Upon a Star

After the Alice in Wonderland Act, there was slideshow about the dancers, their process and passion for dancing. Following the slideshow a huge book ‘Once Upon a Time’ rolled on the stage and  each dancer walked through it marking’ their moment’.  After all the dancers walked through it, the book came together creating a perfect setting for the end of the show and received a lot of appreciation.
