On 13 May, 2017, the HeadStart International School auditorium was filled with an eager crowd of spectators. Over 100 students ages 5-18, from the Dance Academy and CAPA (Creative and Performing Arts Academy) performed Chicago Stories. The performance was a fantastic display of beautifully choreographed hip-hop, modern jazz and featured aerial Ballet. The solo singers and narrator swept us into the world of the 1920’s where the recent disappearance of several key characters in the town had everyone wondering who has committed the crime. A big thank you to Ms Fabienne Mester and her team for pulling off such a wonderful show.
