Dance performers to shine in Blue Moon show

By | |

Lovers of Dance are set to be ‘surprised and mesmerised’ by the incredible talent and ability of Cornwall’s young dancers.

Once In a Blue Moon is set to be an evening of new and original choreography by young dancers including dancers in professional training at AMATA, Falmouth University; Propeller young people’s dance groups; Altitude Dance Company from Cornwall College and also primary schools from across Cornwall.

Course manager Rose Kimberly said she is excited to be hosting the show at the Keay Theatre in St Austell.

“Once in a Blue Moon will be a wonderful celebration of dance training in Cornwall, having Propeller, Cornwall College and Falmouth University joining forces, we’ll be able to show the community what talent we have coming through from our training institutions,” she explained.

“It will be a great example of how the training partnership we have in the county is working to grow strong young dance professionals that are going to do fantastic things in the industry.”

Dance student Shaunie Dodd agreed with Rose on how exciting this show will be, and also highlighted how challenging the creative process has been.

“It’s going to be great to share a stage and our work with other companies and be involved in such a big show,” she said.

“It is an opportunity to put in to practice all of our hard work through the industry-based training we do.”

The performances are to be held on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th December at AMATA Falmouth University at 6.30pm (£7 a ticket £5 concessions).

Then on the Friday 14th December they’ll be bringing the show back to the Keay Theatre, Cornwall College St Austell at 6.30pm.
