Dancers are busy polishing up their moves in preparation for the 12th annual Dance Dynamic Academy Holiday Club Showcase taking place from December 16 to 17 at the East London Guild Theatre.
Titled Dancing Through the Decades, the show will see the audience entertained with classics from both yesteryear and the present.
“We invite our audience to climb into our time capsule and go through time as represented through dance,” Dynamic Dance Academy (DDA) owner Vicky Luff said.
Retirement villages such as Fairlands, Berea, McClelland Adult Centre for the Intellectually Impaired, and non-profit organisations such as Greensleeves, Guardians of Hope and Down’s Syndrome Association have been provided with tickets for their residents to attend.
“We want to afford the opportunity to those who would not normally attend such a show,” Luff said.
“There will be matinee shows at 2pm on both days preceding the evening shows.”
Nearly 80 dance students from all walks of life – even those without proir dance experience – will take part in the production.
Sixteen choreographers have been brought on board to teach various dance styles such as hip
hop, kwaito, Spanish and contemporary.
Popular East London music guru Kerry Hiles will also make an appearance, as well as teaching the students.
The matinee shows cost R60 per person, while the evening shows cost R100, with a portion
of sales going to the dance company’s charity of choice.
Tickets are available at Computicket.
