Students across the north west are fine tuning their dance moves ahead of one of the biggest community events of the year.
They have put in countless hours of hard work into practising to make sure they know their routine – now there is less than two weeks until they take the stage.
More than 100 children from around the region will perform at the 29th annual Rock Pop Mime Show on October 19 at the Tony White Oval.
The Rock Pop Mime is a show for the Mount Isa community, where primary and secondary schools participate in creating and putting on a performance.
Potentially they could win a trophy for best banner, overall dance and costumes.
Event chairman John Davis said students across the north west would come together to rock, pop and mime the night away, showcasing their remarkable talent and making their schools proud.
“The Rock Pop Mine Show was started by Mount Isa Apex Club in 1990,” Mr Davis said.
“It is a good cheap family event for the community to enjoy. Entry is $3 per person or $10 for a family of four.
“Last year we had a record number in the audience there were about 7500 people. On January 26 we won an Australia Day award for the best community event,” he said.
Mr Davis said they were hoping for another big supportive crowd at this year’s concert.
“Gates open at 5pm and the show starts at 7pm, as soon as the sun goes down so we get the lighting effects,” Mr Davis said.
“There will also be food and drinks available.”
