Regular readers know that I have been involved in the wonderful Utopian Dream dance festival again this year. The 2014 one was spectacular.
I am trying to compile some video footage from the week – here is my first offering – the opening night.
Open workshops were held just before the performance and participants went off in male and female groups to create a piece.
The choreographers piece was created the day before, where we gathered at the Julie Ross Dance School in sweltering conditions and co -created a dance piece based on the music mix and concept of Travers Ross. The dancers are from many genres including belly dance (’cause I was in it!), aboriginal, contemporary, hip hop, ballroom, african fusion, cuban salsa and pole dancing.
featuring choreographers – Travers Ross, Jason Winters (& Stephen), Pendu, Jade, Nadiah Idris, Matt Gode, Patric Kuo, Stephen Tannos, Sassy, Christina Monnoron, Steven Donovan, Kathleen Lugnan, Lukas Enciso, Thomas Egan, Craig Monley & Sriani Argaet. (hopefully I didn’t miss anyone).
Dancers and those who dream of dancing, please come and join us in the next Dream…….
