On Tuesday May 14, WDSS Arts went ‘unplugged’ with a production that consisted of a variety of music, art, drama, and dance routines.
All routines were created and performed by students in Grades 7 and 8, as well as Grades 9-12 at Wallaceburg District Secondary School.
“We just wanted our students to have a way to showcase all of the great talents that they have,” Nikki Lane, an arts teacher at WDSS, told the Sydenham Current.
“Whether its visual art, dramatic performances, musical performances, dance performances, we just wanted to give a platform for our students to show what they could do.
Lane added: “All of their performances are done out of class time. The visual art… a lot of them are done as part of their class time, but the musical, dramatic performances, and dance routines are all things that kids have put together and practiced themselves.”
The library doors opened to the public at 6:30 p.m. and a $2 donation was encouraged.
“We will use the funds to offset any costs that were incurred, because we do have the goods department that made some stuff for us, like the cookies, kabobs, lemonade, stuff that that,” Lane said.
“Then the additional money will go towards an art award, which is given to a Grade 12 student at graduation.”
