Mueller Dance showed off their finest during the 2020 Dance Showcase last Tuesday evening. Teacher, Amy Houlihan, introduced a variety of pieces that ranged in style from contemporary to tap, jazz, ballet and cheer. Some presented as large collaborative teams while many of the older students performed solo with pieces they had created for assessment throughout the year.
Our Year 12 students were given a surprise moment of appreciation where they were gifted with flowers and prayed for as they launch into exam season and beyond.
The audience was certainly captivated by the efforts on the night and grateful to be able to witness the performance in person. Well done to all the students who contributed to an energetic and moving evening of dance. Scroll through below for a taste of the action…
The Mueller Film Awards, or ‘Miffys’, overcame COVID restrictions to provide laughter, tears and a small dose of fear on Tuesday night as a key feature of the Mueller Arts Festival.
A large turnout came to watch the year’s best student films ranging from Year 9 YouTube-style videos to Year 12 experimental short productions, all projected in high definition on a mammoth screen in MPAC. The awards included a major ‘Miffy’ for each year level, and open categories like writing, directing and acting.
While Year 12’s Harry Stiller took the lion’s share of trophies, twenty excellent student films were nominated. The event was a confirmation that the quality of filmmaking talent at Mueller is, as always, enormously impressive.
