Winton's Creative Generation

24/08/2016


During the first week of term 3, most students in Winton attended school, but for five talented students, it was an exciting week of rehearsals and performance. Lexie Mitchell, Lauren Heslin, Suzy Barton, Rose Parry and Jessica Hona, along with arts teacher, Fellicia McGrath, and Head of Curriculum, Rebecca Crapp, spent the week in Brisbane in preparation for Creative Generation - State Schools on Stage. Creative Generation celebrates the performing arts, by producing a live show staged by state school students from all around Queensland. This year was the first year Winton State School Students had the opportunity to participate in the event. This could not have been achieved without help from the P&C, who donated $5000 towards the arts at Winton State School.

Learning the dance was not an easy task, with dance rehearsals spanning 5 weeks before the trip. After arriving to Brisbane, the girls got straight into perfecting their moves and formations with the C-Gen choreography team. Not only did the students live and breathe Creative Generation, they also had the full Brisbane experience; taking a ride of the Wheel of Brisbane, shopping in Queen Street mall and catching Pokémon at South Bank.

The team who took part in the massed dance group, performed in 4 dances in 4 shows over Friday and Saturday night, for a crowd of over 8000 people. The show will be aired on network 10, on the 15th October at 1:30pm.​
