Block Battle!!!

These students had a choreography challenge. Each dancer drew a word from a basket. They had to choreograph 16 counts with that word in mind. They then had to teach their choreography to the other members of their group. As a class, we made these mini dances into one big dance. Watch and see what they came up with.






So... which is your favourite block??? Vote now!!

April Dance News

April Dance News

I like to call April DANCE MONTH and being that April 29 is International Dance Day that works here in Frank Hurt and everywhere else in the world. Frank Hurt Dance Department has been busy. I would first like to thank everyone who has helped us out parents, students, administration, and staff – we would not have been able to do it without you. So, what did we do? Check it out:

On Thursday April 8, 2010 we attended the Surrey Dance Festival at the Bell Centre for Performing Arts. All four dance classes performed a dance and we also got a chance to watch elementary school kids of all ages perform their dances. We were very impressed with the younger kids and how well they performed. I was even more impressed with my own because some of them were performing for the first time! It was extra special because our M.C. for the afternoon was our very own Ms. Morris. She did an amazing job of introducing the dance numbers and helping the little kids with the microphone.

Audacity

You can download Audacity at home by going to: audacity.sourceforge.net/download (or just Google Audacity!)

1. First you need to have music to edit. Your music needs to be in MP3 format. You can e-mail yourself the music, bring a CD, or your MP3 player with the USB cords.

2. If your music is in WAV format (you can hear play it on a normal CD player) then you have to convert it to an MP3. You can do this using Windows media player. Open the file in Media Player. Go to Options and change the format to MP3. Then RIP it. Remember to name and save the file somewhere you can easily find it again!

Kelowna Parent Meetings - LAST TWO - Thursday, April 15, 4pm or Friday, April 16, 7am

Thank-you to all the parents that came to the parent meeting we had after the Works in Progress show. You made my life a lot easier. We have a lot of students involved with dance and it is a lot of work putting on these field trips. However, I believe that it is worth it. I believe the students get a great experience and they deserve it for all of the hard work they have put in to dance team throughout the year or years!!

I have not met parents of the following people:
Brendon Sharma
Cierra Germaine
Janica Sanfelices
Kevin Luong
LeiAnne Corpuz
Rheann Whelan

I am offering two final dates for you to meet with me. I don't want anyone to miss out so I look forward to meeting with you on either of the following dates:
Thursday, April 15, 4pm or Friday, April 16, 7am

I am sorry for the late notice but we have been very busy!!

Thank-you for your time and consideration!!

Volunteer Ushers for Outbreak: Please read

I really enjoyed the show last night! I can hardly wait to watch the video and see it all.


If you want to give me five ushers at 9:30 to put the names of the schools on the seats. We will have laminated signs that will be taped to rows to identify where students are seated. At 10 schools start to arrive and these girls can show the schools there sections.

The other ushers should be at the theatre around 12 before the general public arrives.

They all will be given Outbreak shirts and a flashlight. The shirt they can keep but the flashlight comes back to us.

They will be responsible for making sure people do not leave or try to enter the theatre while someone is performing. They will make sure that people do not bring food or drinks into the theatre. They will also keep an eye on anyone that is putting their feet on the backs of the chair in front of them. If anyone is being a total jerk, then the ushers will go and get our real security (my husband, Lucie's husband, the school lia…
