Culture

A Passion

For the Arts

Here in Riebieland, the culture pot simmers, bubbles and boils over and all our achievements are proof of that.

 

In the culture pot, the following dishes (activities) for our culture hot shots are prepared and presented.

 

  • Junior Choir
  • Senior Choir
  • Revue
  • Orators (Team and individual)
  • Public Speaking (Team and individual)
  • Art contest

 

For both the choirs there are outside coaches namely Gert Pottas and Tertius du Plessis. Here are some of the achievements by our nightingale voices. Sing in Harmony winners/ runners-up.

 

  • Super 12 Cum Laude
  • Art Contest Cantare Winners
  • ATKV Finals

 

Our Revue dancing, singing, interpretive jerk and rolling bodies carry their audiences away to their world. In 2022, they were the Nova Arté winners, as well as the kaleidoscope experienced division winners. Their energy is contagious.

 

In Riebieland, the "smooth talkers" who like to have their say and make their point of view also get an opportunity to make their mark. They buzz and talk the world on fire. With Lydia Swanepoel (outdoor drama coach) involved in rounding teams and individuals off and leaving them perfect before each competition, the Riebies are sure to reap the rewards. In 2022, the Riebies will deliver:

 

  • 5 National delnemers on
  • 12 National Participants
  • 3 National winners
  • 2 National Runner-ups
  • 1 3rd place nationally
  • 2 3rd Places National

 

Virseker gives every Riebie the opportunity to learn the skill of performing in front of audiences with ease.
