Fabulous Arts Extravaganza

November10

Hello Everyone. Just a note to say a BIG  THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who supported our Arts Extravaganza.  It was a great success and we’ve received lots of lovely feedback about the show, and everyone involved! 

A visiting artist mentioned that some of the art work in the foyer could hang in any art gallery in the world! Wow, that must have been wonderful for Miss Sharp to hear!  Congratulations to all the artists and Miss Sharp on the lovely display. 

They’ve also been complimentary comments about our clowns – even from the professional clowns who performed for us at the show, as well as the stilt walkers, belly dancers and our amazing roaming band.  Congratulations also to our NICA Sparks performers for their contribution to the evening’s entertainment. Who knew a sauce bottle could be so entertaining. 

Great music was made by our Junior and Senior Choirs and our school band, 800 Decibels rocked off. It was very exciting combining our musical and circus talents for the first time, and we think you all did an amazing job. 

Congratulations to our Bamboozle performers, many who performed on stage for the first time. You are all amazing and very talented. 🙂 

Special thanks to our guest performers, ‘Pancakes are for Breakfast’ who delighted us with their poetry, bananas and other strangely unimaginable things.  I wonder what that last thing was??? 

Finally, our National Institute of Circus Arts students performed a variety of interesting acts that demonstrated their developing skills in juggling, hat manipulation, hula hoops, tumbling and acrobalance.  Well done!

STAY TUNED FOR PHOTOS!

 

End of Term 1

March24

It has been a very busy term, with students performing at Willaura Hospital’s Market Day Fundraiser, and Ballarat’s Harmony Fest.  Both ventures have been very successful and the students have received some excellent feedback from organisers and members of the public.  Well done to everyone involved.  Special thanks to the parents who drove their children to these venues to perform.  Check out Holly’s report about Harmony Day under Bamboozle on the blog. 

Great work is being done by our Nica Sparks Troupe Members, and we look forward to seeing some items of work from them in term two.  They are managing the grueling schedule with a smile on their faces. Check out Callum’s reports by searching for Nica Sparks on our blog

Lots of students have now achieved their SMART goals, and have started writing about it on the blog.  We have invited parents to make positive comments  as well, so please leave some feedback for your children.  

We are due to visit NICA on the second Saturday of term 2.  Can’t wait to try out our next lot of tricks. 

Happy holidays everyone. 🙂

 

Welcome back to school and Circus everyone!

January30

Well we are off to a great start at school this year, with lots of fun things happening. In March Bamboozle will be performing at the Willaura Hospital’s Market. We are all set to start our NICA workshops, and look forward to our first trip there this term. Our video making sessions during class time, were so successful last year, we might look at doing them again. 🙂  What would you like to teach someone how to do. 

Nica Sparks 2 by Callum

March24

Last Saturday I went to Nica Sparks.  First we played a game called Mr Hit.  Mr Hit is a game where you have to remember other people’s names. 

Second we did some acts with the props, which were an egg beater and a skipping rope. 

Last we played Firing Squad.  This is a game where you have to be very funny.  If you are not funny, you get shot by the firing squad.  

We had a lot of fun. 🙂 

Bamboozle at Harmony Fest by Holly Mc

March24

On Sunday 22nd March, Bamboozle performed at the Ballarat Harmony Festival. First Bamboozle met in a small room (the green room) at the Mining Exchange. Then we took the mats and the equipment into the big performance area. 

Next we started our workshop. We had lots of different people come and try equipment. 

It was a great day. At the end of it we all felt proud that we were representing our school.

I have achieved my goal of walking on stilts without falling down at all.  I feel awesome because I have achieved a really cool goal. Now I am going to work on my other goals. 🙂

I feel very happy because I have practiced a lot and achieved my goal of walking on stilts for 20 steps, without falling, and without help from anyone.  Now I am going to learn to do float up and elbow spin using a hula hoop.

I feel proud of myself because I achieved my goal of doing a successful propeller behind my back, using a staff.  Now I am going to juggle and learn to throw a ball behind my back, over my shoulder and then catch it in front.

I have achieved my goal of performing a successful snatch in juggling.  I feel that I can do it now because I practiced hard.  Now I am going to try and do a lot more partner acts.

I have achieved my goal of doing a successful snatch in juggling with a partner. I feel that I can do it properly from now on because I practiced a lot.  Now I am going to do it with another person.
