August Rush, Dancers Love Dogs

Dancers Love Dogs: March 2013

This is a variety dance show performed at the Artscape Theatre which also acted as a fundraising event in aid of Mass sterilisation for dogs in need.


We were privileged to be a part of this event during 2013 and we performed ‘August Rush’ -  a modern/classical piece choreographed by Melani vd Merwe and Margaux van Coller.


The ensemble consisted of 30 girls aged between 7years 16 years old.


Our message and theme was linked to the August Rush theme song -  

“The music is all around us; all you have to do is listen”.



2013 Choreography competition and Demonstration

The choreography competition consisted of two sections:

1st Section   All the Ballet students worked on their own group dances during class time with some assistance from us. They were responsible for all the dance steps, ideas, patterning, etc that you was performed on the evening of the show.


2nd Section These were open choreography pieces that students worked on in their own free time at home.

This could include any friends and was own choice of dance steps, length, costumes, style, etc.



Demonstration this is all the work that the Modern and Hip Hop students were preparing for their examinations.

This was also a great opportunity for everybody to see the progression from younger students to older students.
