News from SCIS:

SCIS Dance! Festival.

On Friday November 30th SCIS hosted an evening of music and dance for students, families and friends from Arusha schools and the wider community.

The evening kicked off with music performed very professionally by the SCIS school band on the lawn, while visitors relaxed and enjoyed food and drinks provided by Khans and our own Student Council.

This was followed by our dance performance to a packed audience in the Hall – our own Dance Challenge and Indian Dance groups were joined by dance groups from ISMAC and Orkeeswa schools and professional dancers to create this first Dance! Festival, which grew out of the Dance Challenge of previous years. The variety of dances was fantastic, and the enthusiasm of the performers and audience alike made for a memorable evening.

Many thanks to Arusha Dance Centre, Arusha Capoeira and The Game (Coach Michael and Junior K.Y.), whose performances entertained and inspired all who saw them.

Credit also to the many students who made the evening run so smoothly, front of house and behind the scenes, and the teachers who supported them.

This event also managed to raise over 250,000 Tsh from ticket sales plus profits from the Student Council snack bar, with all of this money going to the Student Council’s chosen charity.

We hope that this will be the first of many such cultural performances, and look forward to being able to showcase the creative talents of our students again in the near future.
