Dance Catholic Performing Arts Festival 2022

Published September 15, 2022 · Academic

On August 24, St Brigid’s College took to the Convention and Exhibition Centre stage to participate in the Catholic Performing Arts Festival. From our littlest stars in year 3 to our oldest girls in year 12, our dancers shone on stage to some amazing results.


We could not be prouder of our youngest performers (Years 3 – 6) as they transitioned seamlessly from the familiar St Brigid’s stage to the professional and ‘massive’ stage at the Perth Convention Centre. They were true little professionals! Their routine ‘Space Jam’ was a celebration of the importance of being collaborative in all that we do in life. Under the guidance of Ms Walsh and with the incredible choreography and mentorship of Olivia Uetake, Samantha Scott and Isla Harvey. Our newly formed Blaze Dance Company under the guidance of Miss Stephanie Oborne and choreography by Denzel Mahusay brought their fierce energy and dedication to their performance. It was incredible to see them blow the audience away with their skills.

They received excellent comments and results from the judges impressed with their commitment on stage. Our SBC Dance Troupe choreographed by Olivia Smith also showed their narrative skills by performing ‘Heart Bound’, a work examining the need to be with each other and focus on what makes us bound to the earth. Our girls were exceptional in performing this work gaining exceptional comments and marks from the judges. Our Ballet Troupe named “Ballet Etoile” also performed their dance work “Maria”, a take on the West Side Story musical choreographed by Olivia Smith and Thalia Munyard. Our stunning ballet dancers displayed maturity and artistry showing the importance of the Ballet art form and the skill and technique it takes. Overall we were awarded some excellent results in all troupes with every troupe on the night gaining an award and some excellent comments!

  • Blaze Dance Company – Certificate of Excellence

  • Ignite Dance Company – Certificate of Excellence

  • SBC Dance Troupe – Certificate of Merit

  • Ballet Etoile – Certificate of Merit

Congratulations to all involved!

Kyra was one of seven recipients of the award out of a total of 24,000 TAFE students. Last week Kyra visited the College to provide some mentorship to our Year 10s. Kyra spoke about the various pathways to tertiary study, how she navigated them at St Brigid’s, the subject choices that worked for her as well as her personal epiphanies when it came to study styles and her abilities. “The dedication and perseverance of my teachers pushed me forward to be the best I can be, and they never let me give up or do anything less than my full potential. St Brigid’s allowed me to find new opportunities and ways to achieve my goals which were outside of the school’s set curriculum. This game me the drive to push myself to amazing opportunities and to do the things that have lead me to where I am today, “said Kyra. Today, Kyra is enrolled at ECU, where she is pursuing an Undergraduate Degree in Human Resource.
