Eastern Goldfields College’s general dance students have been selected to perform in the Act-Belong-Commit Youth on Health Festival — YOH Fest — finals at the Mandurah Arts Center on October 28.
The students entered a performance in the 2022 YOH Fest challenge at Goldfields Arts Center on September 13.
The theme of this year’s performing and visual arts event, which occurs annually across the State, was wellness.
Year 12 student Montana Stutley and Year 11 students Brooklyn Dowling, Lillian O’Donnell, Sarah Adams and Dayla Heke choreographed an original piece called Restless.
English and dance teacher Belinda Mitchell said the piece explored the issue of sleep insomnia that many teenagers struggled with and highlighted some coping mechanisms.
“Their performance received a certificate of merit for outstanding synchronization, which scored 20/20,” Ms Mitchell said.
“Other certificates went to Montana for impressive athleticism in a contemporary dance showcase and to Lillian for audience appeal in a tap dance showcase.
“There were over 330 entries this year and this group of performers have been fortunate enough to be the only Goldfields group selected to perform in the finals, so well done.”
