Dancers put on Kaleidoscapes of performances

03 November 2003

The UCT School of Dance presents its annual public performance at the Baxter Theatre on November 7 and 8.

Kaleidoscapes invites the audience to an exciting programme of a variety of dance styles, highlighting the versatility of the students and the diverse range offered by the UCT School of Dance. Dance styles ranging from classical ballet, to contemporary dance, jazz, Spanish and African dance, will be showcased.

One of the major works that will be presented is a new and innovative production based on the story of Carmen. This is a collaborative effort by lecturers Lindy Raizenberg, Sharon Friedman, Mavis Becker and Maxwell Xolani Rani, and will blend different dance styles.

Also featured on the programme will be Paquita, produced by Elizabeth Triegaardt, a tap piece by Paul Johnston and a work by Yarisha Singh, who graduated from the UCT School of Dance two years ago, majoring in choreography. Singh has been teaching contemporary dance at the SACM during the past year. Performances are at 20h00 on Friday and 14h30 and 20h00 on Saturday. Bookings at only R40 and R20 for students can be made at Computicket or the Baxter Theatre.
