School students tell stories through Wakakirri dance

Students from Hunter schools will share their stories through dance in the annual Wakakirri national arts event next week.  Works range from wholly original stories to book adaptations and classic tales reworked.

“The most exciting thing about Wakakirri is seeing the kids so positively engaged and witnessing all of their hard work creating amazing stories,” festival director Adam Loxley said.

Port Stephens students, along with those from Cessnock, Tarro and Wallsend South public schools plus Lambton, Kurri Kurri high schools and Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College Tumbi Umbi Campus, will perform their dances at Civic Theatre, Newcastle on Wednesday, August 30.
