Assignment: Warm-ups and How to Use Audacity

Grade 8 Warm-Up Grade 9 Warm-UpGrade 10 Warm-UpGrade 11/12 Warm-UpAudacity

You can download Audacity at home by going to: (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!

3. Open Audacity

4. Project: Import Audio – browse to find your song. You can only import one song at a time. (You can also drag and drop)

5. Edit your song. Highlight areas to add effects or listen to that one area. You should always listen to the area before you cut it so that you know that you have the correct selection. …

Field Trip: Harbour Dance and Ballet BC November 6

Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is field trip time! I am taking 15 students to Harbour Dance Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Thursday, November 6, 2014. The cost to students is $20. This includes: a dance class, a dance performance, and transportation.
This is an awesome opportunity for students to take a class from a new teacher and at a new studio. Harbour is a great place to take drop – in classes of all levels and for all ages. And, how often do you get to see a ballet performance? For some of our students, I am certain it will be their first time. Ballet BC student performances are a great way to introduce younger dancers to the theatre. They are a little bit shorter and the students get to ask the dancers questions at the end. 

Our Itinerary:
9:15 am                      Leave Frank Hurt Secondary 9:15 – 10:45              School Bus to NSS and then Harbour Dance 11:00 – 12:00            Harbour Class 12:00 – 12:45            Eat – bring a lunch or buy a lunch on Granvil…

Congratulations Frank Hurt Dance Teams 2014 - 2015!

Thank-you to everyone that auditioned for Frank Hurt Dance Teams this year. We had an amazing turn out and I am proud of everyone that came and gave it a go. I know it can be very daunting. If you didn't make it this year please do not be discouraged. Please keep dancing and come back and try again next year. I know many people that didn't make it their first year in grade 8 but made it in grade 9. Just keep dancing and having fun.

If your name is on the lists, congratulations… but it is not over yet. The first two weeks of dance teams we will be watching all of the dancers. Please try your very hardest and practice as much as you can on your own time. We still have too many dancers and it was too hard to cut people from that little audition. We want to take the first two weeks to watch people working hard and dancing.

I also want to thank everyone who came to help out at our Dance team auditions. I feel so happy to have such supportive dance helpers and alumni. Thank-you!!


First Notice Home: Sept. 23, 2014

Dear Parents/ Guardians
Dance is a performance art so performing is a large part of a dance student’s education. Dance students are marked on their preparation as well as their skills demonstrated at these performances and at the dress rehearsal. Students will have the opportunity to perform informally in front of their peers and formally at assemblies, festivals and competitions. Notices of reminder and permission forms will be sent home when these events come closer. The following performance and rehearsal dates are for our show at Frank Hurt Theatre. This performance is integral to the dance program. Please make note of these dates and help ensure that your child is in attendance. If there are any conflicts please inform your child’s teacher immediately. This semester the dance department will be presenting one evening show. It is a formal performance with full costumes and lighting. The dress rehearsal and elementary show will be held on December 15 from 12:30-2:30pm and the show w…
