Adults Performance Group

2019 

"Gala" 

Dear all Adult dancers

 

Term 4 is right around the corner and it means “showtime”. After a highly successful Gala shows over the past two years, this year we are planning another fantastic show. Held at the wonderfully big (500 seat theatre) Eldon Hogan Performing Arts Centre at Xavier College in Kew. 

Held on Tuesday 10th December 2019.

Our Adults bring so much to our school and for the students who would like to perform; this will give them the opportunity and show what you achieved in your dance studies.

 

Our production is designed to give dancers of all levels valuable performance and production experience and will bring together dancers from the age of four to eighty-four in a celebration of dance and its ability to unite and bring joy.

 

We suggest having at least 1-year current and consistent training if wishing to join the production groups.

 

Rehearsals are always conducted with the utmost professionalism but are also enjoyed for the social aspect, with many dancers enjoying regular post-rehearsal drinks and gatherings after rehearsals.

 

The 2019 show will be a ‘Gala’ style with short pieces that will entertain and delight.

 

 Programme

-Adults Ballet  

Beginner and Advanced Adults ballet students will be dancing to the wonderful score “Fratres For Cello & Piano” By Avo Part,

Kalman aims to choreograph and create a vibrant group piece based on the ballet vocabulary.

Kalman will also be creating a contemporary adults work for advanced students to the deeply poetic song "Can’t Run But " by Paul Simons on his new album.
