Top academy celebrates 10 years
THE Dynamic Dance Academy this year celebrates its 10th anniversary and has opened applications to all dancers and dance enthusiasts from the age of six for this year’s edition.
Dynamic Body Studio owner and Pilates instructor, Vicky Luff, said: “Ten years is quite surreal to be honest. Time really flies when you’re having fun. I’m feeling incredibly blessed and so excited that each year the academy has grown and developed.
“It’s been such an amazing journey. Dance is a universal language and I truly believe that the academy has made a difference in many lives and I pray that we are able to continue to do that for many more years.”
With various choreographers on board, senior participants can choose to delve into as many as 10 different genres during their academy stint.
From classical ballet and contemporary, to hip hop, afro-fusion and pantsula, the academy offers something for everyone.
The academy is divided into three age categories, catering for mini, junior and senior dancers as well as those with minimal – to no dance training. This year, the academy is also open to university students and young adults who would like to take part.
“I haven’t specified a cut-off age this year as I’d like it to be available for older dancers as well. The seniors will have their classes mostly during the day which could be a problem for those working, but if there is enough interest I am willing to set aside some time for evening classes,” Luff said.
Classes will run from November 27 to December 10. During this time, participants will learn routines in different dance styles in preparation for the Showcase performances taking place at the Guild Theatre on December 11 and 12.
This year, the Dynamic Dance Academy seniors will also be going to Hobbiton, Hogsback for their camp, taking part in a myriad of fun activities including hiking, team building, zumba and belly dancing.
“This is the first time the Hobbiton camp is on offer to all seniors and I think it’s going to be a great way to start the academy off,” Luff said.
Participants also stand a chance to win awards for their efforts, that includes trophies for most dynamic and most improved dancer.
Applications close on November 15, with registration taking place at the Dynamic Body Studio on November 18 between 8.30 and 12pm. Fees vary depending on the number of genres participants choose. Included in the fees is an academy top and a DVD of the showcase performance.
