March 2012 Showcase of Dance held at ARTSCAPE

Melani van der Merwe of Melani School of Dance had this to say about their participation at this prestigious event.


'In March 2012, we participated in the Western Province Dance Teachers' Association (WPDTA) SHOWCASE OF DANCE at the ARTSCAPE THEATRE . . . What a magnificant way for us as teachers to exhibit our Choreographed work, and for our students to perform on one of the Cape's most prestigious venues and in front of an appreciative audiance.


Western Province Dance Teachers' Association chairman Paul Johnson had this to say about the event.


'Western Province Dance Teachers' Association is about Dance and the progression of Dance. As the saying goes, behind every strong man is a stronger woman, but in my case I am very fortunate to have more than one! They are a dynamic group of ladies, forming the Executive committee, who constantly give their valuable time and best efforts to keep the WPDTA on top form.


The showcase of Dance gives participating members a platform to exhibit their work, and affords their dancers an invaluable opportunity to perform on a prestigious professional stage. Individually an event such as this is a very costly exercise for dance schools to do alone.

All students at Melani School of Dance participate in an end of the year concert.

This year the school put on a production of Coppelia, the girl with enamel eyes. The concert took place at Van Riebeeck Primary School on the 7th and 8th of September. All who attended will agree that production was one that will not be forgotten for the excellent dancing, lighting and sound.

Dance for a Dream

In March 2007 a group of dancers from the studio participated in "Dance for a Dream" at the Baxter which was in aid of the Reach for a dream foundation. It turned out to be an evening of explosive dance with a superb variation in styles.
