Year 12 Berwick Campus student Mia Agland has earned a prestigious Top Class award, putting her at the top of Victoria in her VCE Dance subject.
Mia will perform her skills-based solo on Wednesday 6 March at the Melbourne Recital Centre, as part of the VCE Season of Excellence.
Top Class presents 12 concerts by outstanding VCE performing arts students who have completed VCE Dance and VCE VET Dance, VCE Drama, Theatre Studies, Music Performance, Music Investigation, Music Style & Composition and VCE VET Music Industry.
Mia said she “can’t believe she has been selected” and thanked her mum for encouraging her to audition. She was shortlisted for Top Class after achieving outstanding results for her VCE performance examinations.
Rehearsals for her routines ran over many months and Mia thanked Ms Eastwood – former Head of Performing Arts, Berwick Campus, for having faith in her strengths as a dancer.
Mia has over 15 years of experience in dance and completed Units 3 and 4 VCE Dance in Year 11. She is still refining her further study plans for next year and will continue with contemporary/lyrical dancing each week while she focuses on other subjects this year.
