A creative dance showing the ‘life cycle of a lizard’ has earned Beaconhills College Year 12 student Teagan Hogben a place in the VCE Season of Excellence Top Class performances.

Top Class recognises the best dancers in Victoria for their work in their 2017 VCE subject.

It’s the third VCE Season of Excellence award for Beaconhills. Berwick Campus’ Lachlan Toth made it to Top Designs for his product design work, while Pakenham Campus student James Wilkinson impressed the Top Designs judges with his Systems Engineering project.

Teagan said her composition dance solo represented the story of a lizard’s life – hatching from an egg, exploring the environment, then chased by a predator, bitten and dying.

She said she was thrilled with the invitation to perform in Top Class on 1 March at Southbank’s Melbourne Recital Centre.

“I was very excited to have found out that I was going to be performing my VCE Solo in Top Class – I never would have thought at the start of last year that I was going to receive an audition, let alone be invited to perform,” Teagan said.

She said she had worked hard with her Dance teacher at the Berwick Campus, Stephanie Borrie, so it was rewarding to have all the work pay off.

Teagan is completing her VCE this year, then plans to take a gap year in 2019 before doing a photography course and will continue taking dance classes.

She was one of the Beaconhills dancers who made it to the nationals of the Dance Star and Glee competition in Queensland last August, after the College collected gold, silver and bronze at the state finals.
