Supporting Young Dancers


The Top End of the Northern Territory has quite a community of dancers. Even though the community may be small in numbers that brings a greater sense of intimacy and cooperation. A number of dance schools and dance companies operate and there is an active dance school at one of the local high schools.

As an older person who has been given a chance to learn, perform and choreograph contemporary dance I think it important to do what I can to encourage and support younger dancers learning their craft.

Recently I had the opportunity to play the King in a production by the Darwin School of Ballet of “Sleeping Beauty” at the Darwin Entertainment Centre. This production showcased students in all age groups that are offered classes by the school. A great night out and an amazing production .

I am very pleased to be able to support young dancers and had a ball in this show. The photo  is of me waiting out the hundred years between Princess Aurora falling asleep, being woken by Prince Charming  and curtain call.
