When Wade High School students Alex Kelly and Caitlin Lane were offered to opportunity to help choreograph a dance for KROP, they had no hesitation in saying yes.
The pair were just two of a number performers from around the Riverina gathered at the Griffith for a monumental showcase.
KROP (Kids Rapt On Performing) combines the talents of 395 students from 17 different schools into one performance.
Caitlin Lane and Alex Kelly used KROP as their chance to express their creativity. Both also dance outside of school.
“We’re performing Alice in Wonderland. We have three different groups, the Alice’s, the hatters and the queens. We have a few different songs and have choreographed to suit each group,” Alex said.
Caitlin agreed it was important for everyone in their group to have their chance to shine.
“Everyone has their chance in the spotlight. I’m enjoying the chance to perform,” she said
Griffith Public School’s John Samuelu Kirby loved the chance to take to the stage. The year six student and his school choir were singing This is Me from the musical smash-hit The Greatest Showman.
“I think for KROP you get to experience new things. You can show your talent off and what you can do,” he said.
“We were all very excited because it’s our first time as a choir that we get to perform.
This year’s KROP of students were also joined by a special guest in the form of Voice Australia star Ben Sekali, who join
ed students on stage for the final number.
“Thinking back to it now it’s a great program bringing kids together,” Sekali told the Area News yesterday.
“It’s amazing to see how much creativity the kids have.”
