For The Love of Dance 2017

The Winning Table

Because we didn’t have our usual concert to finish off the year in style we did things a bit differently this year.

In Jeffreys Bay, there were two parties hosted for the different age groups.  Please visit our FaceBook page for more pics of those events.

In Lorraine, the dancers entertained us with their own choreography at the Walmer West Primary School.

Each class worked together to choreograph their dances to present.

The audience had their own competition with a table decorating contest, so the atmosphere was most festive.

We were very proud of what all the dancers came up with. Just shows what a little teamwork can do.

Here are some pics of the event.

Controlled Chaos

Well done to Carrie and the seniors from Jeffreys Bay for putting on a very successful production at the Nico Malan Inikollig Arts Festival.

The girls danced twice a day on the 27th and 28th of March and were a popular must-see show choice.

The production was called Controlled Chaos and was a dance adaptation depicting the masks and struggles of mental uncertainty.

The twenty-minute piece focusing on mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety and general teenage mental disorders while maintaining a preface of calm and control. This is to lightly explore the hidden struggles that are not always apparent but hidden under masks and uncertainty.

This is to lightly explore the hidden struggles that are not always apparent but hidden under masks and uncertainty.

Bridgette Bell-Cross

Lara Fourie

Elandri Venter
