Semi-finalists soar

WOW! That’s the first thing that came to mind when these dancers took flight on the Lester Vaughan School stage last night during the final NIFCA Performing Arts Semifinal. The performance was titled Home.

It was another excellent night of talent and creativity as the NIFCA semi-finals continued at the Combermere School.

Music dominated the performances with the school choirs lifting their youthful voices to fill the Major Noott Hall.

St. Luke’s Brighton Primary, St. George Primary, St. Giles Primary, Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary, Sharon Primary School did a range of familiar songs such as Every Time I feel the Spirit, My Life, My Love, My All, and Flying Free.

Other performances in this musical genre came from Ellerslie Rising Stars Male Trio (Blessing in the Storm), Christ The King BoomWhackers (When the Saints go

Marching In and Something’s Happening), Nichole Murray (The Lord’s Year), Dario Devon Piggott (BIM on Strings), Tricia Maynard (Gotta Be), and Los Cantantes (Total Praise).

Drama and speech also featured on the night with Charika Pilgrim performing Violated, Wayne Harewood doing a piece entitled Reflections, New Creations Ministries showed off their skills in Lost – Dancing with the Enemy, DJ Simmons did Vibes, St. George Primary’s students paid Tribute to Jeanette Layne-Clark, showed how Bajan they were in I am Bajan and made An Ode to Reading, while Marcus Myers appealed to business people in Dear Corporate Society.

Well choreographed dances came from The Element -Disconnect, Gene Carson – Transition, The Barefoot Project, Carved in Sand, and Dancin’ Africa-To God be the Glory.

The tradition of excellence continues tonight at Combermere School. (DS)
