Calamity Jane!

This week was the week of our school musical - Calamity Jane!
  So much work and effort had gone into the production, so we were all very excited and nervous coming up to the week of the show.
Lauren as Calamity Jane,
and Darragh as the Colonel
  I was choreographing and dancing in the three ballet dances in the musical, to the songs 'Higher Than A Hawk', 'Black Hills of Dakota' and 'Secret Love'.
  Over the course of several months, a few other senior students and I choreographed the 3 dances and taught 2 of them to the junior ballet dancers. After practicing at lunchtime every day for months, we were ready!!
  The 4 nights of the show went so well - everyone who came to see it thought it was a fantastic production, particularly considering it was only a school musical!
  All the cast, crew, dancers and orchestra performed so well, and it was a pleasure to be a part of the whole production!

  Here are some clips of the songs I danced to from the movie version of Calamity Jane:
