Novo Começa!

July 2018

Novo Começa!

The show featured over 80 students in Years 7-13.

Over 300 people from our local community came to King James to see our latest Dance Show, entitled Novo Começa, which is Portuguese for ‘New Beginnings’.

The one-night-only, sell-out show, which had a cast of 80 students in Years 7-13, contained a number of pieces inspired by evolving Jamaican dance and recent work with our friends in Brazil. All were choreographed by our dedicated students who work together each morning, lunch time and after school.

The audience was thrilled by the celebration of creativity and unity, presented in a diverse range of dances from uplifting large group performances to moving emotional dance pieces.
