Earlier this year DANCE EXTENSION entered the Act-Belong-Commit YOH Festival, which was a filmed event this year, due to COVID-19.
YOH FEST has traditionally been placed to address this niche, with a festival that promotes health messages to a young state-wide audience; with thousands of school aged participants devising performances and visual arts works.
With all the restrictions that came into place during 2020; we came up with an alternative platform for YOH FEST in the form of an on-line digital showcase : The Act-Belong-Commit YOH ‘Screen’ Fest and changed the theme to ‘ISOLATION’
We asked participants to get creative with the Arts; using the tools available to them to – record their art form, edit it, then send in their creations.
Our dance piece was titled THE HIVE and was based on the festival’s allocated theme of ‘isolation’. It was choreographed by the students from years 4-6.
There were over 600 entries from all over the state and only 19 selected to be part of a collective online showcase…and drumroll…
Vasse Primary was selected AND HIGHLY COMMENDED! 🎉
The 94 minute showcase streamed live on Friday 30th October. You can watch our entry and the showcase on https://watch.yohfest.com.au/category/dance/q:vasse
There is also a People’s Choice Award with voting open until 15th November.
Congratulations to our very talented, passionate and creative team. So proud!
