Student dance recital delights

Halfmoon Bay Performing Arts

Their love of dance and song was infectious as the students of Halfmoon Bay Performing Arts took to the stage at the Chatelech Secondary School Theatre on May 27 and stole the hearts of the audience.

In this, their fifth year of performing, from the charming newest little ballerinas to the seasoned participants, the vibrant medley of presentations demonstrated the students’ progress and confidence in every genre of dance from ballet to jazz, tap and musical theatre. These, along with a series of dance and song soloists, delighted the audience and had them clapping along to the music.

The lyrical ballet group formed a perfect tableau before a backdrop of an award-winning slide of mountains and ocean, and danced, feather-like, to Not About Angels.

Not surprisingly, the finale, We’re All Made of Stars, culminated in an outflowing of love and nostalgia as another year of the joy of dance and song was ending.

Kudos to Elaine Hunter, Halfmoon Bay Performing Arts director / instructor, for her ongoing dedication and brilliance in guiding every student to a new level of excellence. Her choreography and staging bespeaks of her years of experience in successful stage production. And thanks to the parents for supporting their children through the necessary hard work and discipline for which they are now being rewarded, and which will reflect in all aspects of their lives.
