The (Myley Cyrus) 'Hoedown Throwdown'

Northport Public School of Port Elgin has 'star power' and then some!

From the music of ABBA and Myley Cyrus to Tom Jones and the Beatles, the show was a medley of some 16 musical styles, talent and showmanship performed by the Northport Glee Club members and students.

Ranging from full-out 'chorus line' choreographed production numbers to duets and musical dance, the show was an incredible display of talent.

Under the direction of Ms. Jackie Ewing, the students performed song and dance numbers from almost every musical genre. 

"The students are unbelievable," said Ewing.  "Other than a little tweaking here and there, they choreographed all their numbers."

"This is something the students will take with them for the rest of their lives.  It is very difficult to get up on stage and perform and, for some of them, this will be a life altering experience," added Ewing.

Ms. Ewing thanks the students
