Engaging excursions from pre-primary to year
We have 3 AWESOME excursion packages to choose from
The Listies Make You LOL! features alien attacks, toilet paper cannons, spew, the rudest word in the world and the most disgusting pair of undies you’ve ever seen in your life.
Students will also be invited to a dance workshop and performance of Game Theory an all-terrain dance performance that is designed to be performed anywhere, indoors or outdoors, day or night. A game of hopscotch grows increasingly complicated and physically demanding, transforming bit by bit into a kaleidoscopic journey around the world of body percussion, and ending in a hyperactive havoc.
With exquisite puppetry, in a tale forged of fantasy and reality, Ruby’s Wish is a pocket-sized bundle of charm for all ages. As we watch the two misfits – ailing child and awkward clown – create their fantasy world of mop monsters, bed caves and imaginary paper friends, we are drawn into Ruby’s bittersweet life – and come to see that imagination can make almost anything come true.
Students will also participate in Jens Altheimer’s Workshop, Cause and Effect. Part evolving machine, part performance children will be invited to tackle creative problem-solving with a tinkering twist.
Four Go Wild in Wellies is a playful look at how friendships are built, broken and mended – a whimsical dance adventure featuring tents that have a life of their own, bobble hats, and of course, lots of fun in wellies!
Indepen-dance is a Scottish, award winning inclusive dance company for disabled and non-disabled people to enjoy, express, and fulfil their potential through dance.
