Dancers selected for elite showcase performance

OVER three decades of dance experience exists between these two Trinity High School graduates.

So it's little wonder Bronte Coleman and Rhiannan Beardow have been selected to take part in Callback - a showcase of the top 25 exemplary dance performance and compositions by HSC students across the state.

For Byron Bay local Bronte Coleman, her major work was more than just a choreographed dance film.

"The concept behind it is to communicate how, so often, we go through life and we're so consumed by everything that we have to do," she said.

"Our list of to-do jobs, our work, we just get so busy that we don't stop to enjoy and recognise the beauty that's in the world."

She said her own experience with the HSC probably influenced the concept behind the work.

"It kind of made me think more about how so much work can really take over someone's life and how they don't have time to appreciate the blessings in life."

Rhiannan Beardow, who will be performing a contemporary dance piece for Callback, said dance for her was like speaking through movement.

"When I dance I feel like that's a better way for me to express," she said. "You just get such a good feeling and it feels so right."

The two girls will be travellingto Sydney on February 13-14 at The University of Sydney's Seymour Centre.

Ms Beardow said the thought of performing at Callback was both exciting and surreal.

"I don't think it will sink in until I'm there," she said.
