Black and Gold

14 September 2009

BDF Jazz Art (stand)Dance in all its forms took centre stage last week at the 5th annual Baxter Dance Festival. The programme covered a wide spectrum of dance genres, from ballet to jazz, hip hop to contemporary, Spanish dance to physical theatre - and everything in between.

Top local talent (from both established and emerging dance companies) and choreographers from all over the Western Cape showcased their work.

This year's commission was awarded to Mamela Nyamza, a rising star in the dance industry. Her work was performed alongside pieces by the EOAN Group, the Cape Dance Company, Jazzart Dance Theatre, La Rosa Spanish Dance Theatre and InSPIRAtions, as well as students from City Varsity, Stellenbosch University and many other dance schools.
