Moovit-One Way Success!
 Onehunga‌ ‌High‌ ‌School‌ ‌dance‌ ‌students‌ ‌in‌ ‌collaboration‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌Royal‌ ‌New‌ ‌Zealand‌ ‌Ballet,‌ ‌Vodafone‌ ‌Events‌ ‌Centre‌ ‌and‌ ‌Identity‌ ‌Dance‌ crew‌ ‌along‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌OHS‌ ‌Jazz‌ ‌band‌ ‌and‌ ‌Level‌ ‌2&3‌ ‌Music‌ ‌students‌ ‌have‌ ‌delighted‌ ‌the‌ ‌audience‌ ‌with‌ ‌their‌ ‌truly‌ ‌inspiring‌ ‌performances‌ ‌at‌ ‌the‌ ‌Moovit‌ ‌production‌ ‌last‌ ‌week.‌ 
 
In‌ ‌Part‌ ‌I‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌programme,‌ ‌the‌ ‌school‌ ‌Jazz‌ ‌band‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌Level‌ ‌2&3‌ ‌Music‌ ‌students‌ performed‌ ‌a‌ ‌selection‌ ‌of‌ ‌numbers,‌ ‌all‌ ‌of‌ ‌which‌ ‌were‌ ‌received‌ ‌rapturously‌ ‌by‌ ‌a‌ ‌very‌ ‌enthusiastic‌ ‌audience.‌ 
 
In‌ ‌Part‌ ‌II‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌programme,‌ ‌46‌ ‌performers‌ ‌took‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌stage‌ ‌to‌ ‌perform‌ ‌a‌ ‌series‌ ‌of‌ dances‌ ‌named,‌ ‌‌One‌ ‌Way‌,‌ ‌set‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌music‌ ‌of‌ ‌Mozart‌ ‌remixed‌ ‌by‌ ‌our‌ ‌very‌ ‌own‌ ‌Alumnus,‌ Eugene‌ ‌Teulilo‌.‌ ‌They‌ ‌gave‌ ‌a‌ ‌captivating‌ ‌performance.‌ ‌The‌ ‌many‌ ‌hours‌ ‌of‌ ‌hard‌ ‌work,‌ the‌ ‌care‌ ‌and‌ camaraderie‌ ‌they‌ ‌felt‌ ‌for‌ ‌each‌ ‌other‌ ‌was‌ ‌clearly‌ ‌evident‌ ‌in‌ ‌their‌ ‌dances.‌ ‌These‌ ‌students‌ ‌and‌ ‌their‌ ‌teachers‌ ‌had‌ ‌become‌ ‌a‌ ‌family,‌ ‌coming‌ ‌together‌ ‌to‌ ‌support‌ ‌each‌ ‌other‌ ‌through‌ ‌the‌ ‌creative‌ ‌process‌ ‌to‌ ‌produce‌ ‌an‌ ‌outstanding‌ ‌event.‌ ‌Gospel‌ ‌Tupu‌ ‌created‌ ‌the‌ ‌original‌ ‌artwork‌ ‌used‌ ‌as‌ ‌a‌ ‌backdrop‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌dances, ‌which‌ ‌reinforced‌ ‌the‌ ‌expression‌ ‌of‌ ‌urban‌ ‌edginess‌ ‌that‌ ‌the‌ ‌dancers‌' ‌communicated.‌ 
 
The‌ ‌number‌ ‌of‌ ‌talented‌ ‌former‌ ‌students‌ ‌who‌ ‌had‌ ‌been‌ ‌involved‌ ‌in‌ ‌Moovit‌ ‌when‌ ‌they‌ ‌were‌ ‌at‌ ‌school,‌ ‌who‌ ‌came‌ ‌back‌ ‌to‌ ‌help‌ ‌with‌ ‌this‌ ‌years’‌ ‌show,‌ ‌is‌ ‌testimony‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌impact‌ ‌being‌ ‌involved‌ ‌in‌ ‌this‌ ‌production‌ ‌has‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌lives‌ ‌of‌ ‌many‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌students.‌ ‌Thank‌ ‌you‌ ‌to‌ ‌all‌ ‌of‌ ‌those‌ ‌former‌ ‌students‌ ‌who‌ ‌supported‌ ‌the‌ ‌production,‌ ‌in‌ ‌particular‌ ‌Eugene‌ ‌Teulilo,‌ ‌who‌ ‌is‌ ‌now‌ ‌in‌ ‌his‌ ‌final‌ ‌year‌ ‌studying‌ ‌music‌ ‌at‌ Auckland‌ ‌University,‌ ‌Grace‌ ‌Leong‌ ‌a‌ ‌dance‌ ‌student‌ ‌who‌ ‌was‌ ‌a‌ ‌guest‌ ‌choreographer‌ ‌and‌ ‌Ava‌ ‌Hodgetts,‌ ‌who‌ ‌now‌ ‌studies‌ ‌lighting‌ ‌design,‌ ‌who‌ ‌designed‌ ‌the‌ ‌lighting‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌show.‌
