Last Friday, January 9th, 2015 Jogja English finally held a monthly program called English Performance Show. A program with a thousand of fun and creativity. All members from all classes attended and participated on the event performing their best performance while showing up their English skill. I could only said it was marvelous. There were about seven groups performing such different yet interesting performances. They came from five regular classes and two English Homes. While another one English Home members were really busy, therefore unfortunately they couldn’t perform.
These are the amazing MC who led the event. They were really attractive and talented. All eyes were on them couldn’t wait what surprise they would entertain all audiences. Indah and Baron are their names. They began the event with an interesting ice breaking to awaken all audiences to get ready for great competition. Afterwards, the event started, one by one classes performed their talent entertaining all audiences. All participants enthusiastically performed what they prepared for. Boisterous applause conquered every single inch of second floor SOCIUS Cafe appreciating members’ performances. All participants were really creative and talented performing their performance. Funny, amazed, impressed, sometimes sad all together in one covering all ayes on seeing their creativity in showing their English skill.
After a while, at the end of the event, our judges Setya, Eris and Mitra announced the winner of the competition. It went to Male Home Manggis. Male home members who consist of nine members with their theme World Cup 2014 performed a likely drama parody starring as football players which was ended by their mesmerizing Harlem Shake dance. They were really attractive and entertaining cheering all people and making audiences feel impressed of how they perform their dialogue in English. “Being crazy was our key to be the winner”, said Nafi one of male home member. Besides, their compactness was also important point of their winning. Congratulation on winning this competition Male Home! I can’t wait for the next performance from you guys in next EPS.
Other than the winner, we had also the most favorite performance which went to the Female Home. Yeay! Female Home, they rocked the stage on and on like what they used to do in previous EPS.. They were even more creative in performing their Syahrini’s style and AADC musical drama that night. I like the one who became Syahrini. She was really coquettish as the real Syahrini. No shy, no nervous, all cheerful and on fire knowing that they are in a hot competition. It is just like they have already been accustomed to EPS theme like the back of their hands therefore they become the winner in almost every EPS. Their ‘all out style” really made the judges decided them as the most favorite performers as they really got audiences’ laughter and fun meaning that audiences really enjoyed their performance.
For sure, the other groups were also creative and entertaining. Things we know in a competition there must only a winner meaning that the others should prepare harder and more serious. And the point of this event is to get used to speaking English with friends, to improve confidence and to have fun. I can’t wait for the next EPS with different theme. Keep joining us and practicing your English.
