Rutherford Performs at YouDance
Level 3 Dance will perform their NCEA choreographies at YouDance on Tuesday 13 June. YouDance is Tāmaki Makaurau’s celebration of youth dance, showcasing the best curriculum dance work by senior secondary students. Rutherford’s three dance works a response to Neil Ieremia’s Method. The dances communicate the naivety, innocence and freedom of childhood, as seen in childhood games. Our students promise to make a sparkling, joyous contribution to YouDance 2023.
Rutherford College performs at YouDance 7pm Tuesday 13 June, Raye Freedman Arts Centre, Epsom Girls’ Grammar School, Silver Rd, Epsom.

Yay that’s me on the first big photo taken last year . That was my acrylic painting class, I also joined several times pottery class. I enjoyed both and learning basics I do painting at home now. I moved to Snells Beach on the end of last year and I do some this type activities around but if I now well, they’re not organised by schools.
