St Joseph's students dazzle with dance

Late last year, St Joseph’s Primary School, Merriwa Social Worker Hayley Maeder advised the student body of the Arts Upper Hunter’s Dance Craze Video competition. It was open to young people aged eight to 15 living in the Dungog, Singleton, Muswellbrook and Upper Hunter areas.

For their efforts, four St Joseph’s students — Grace Booth, Lula Peebles, Annabelle Hunt and Rihanna Hunt — were ultimately announced the winners of the competition and awarded a cash prize of $500 between them.

The competition asked for groups of three to six members to select one song by Muswellbrook songwriter Morrigan Raine and create a “new dance craze”, video it on a phone, tablet or camera, and enter it in the contest.

Grace, Lula, Annabelle and Rihanna worked together under the team name Crazy Glaze to choreograph a dance together.

Though they are yet to decide how they will spend their winnings, the four are planning on doing something together.

The girls were grateful for the opportunity presented to them by Arts Upper Hunter and look forward to participating in similar experiences in the future.
