Bod­ies get mo­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Jessie Tol­son

THOSE who en­joy a good dance con­cert are in luck with the best lo­cally trained dancers of­fer­ing a spe­cial per­for­mance over two nights.

Stu­dents of Bod­ies i n Mo­tion Dance School are gear­ing up for what is set to be their big­gest con­cert ever.

Re­hearsals are in full swing for their an­nual end of year pro­duc­tion, this year called ‘‘Desti­na­tion Un­known’’, fea­tur­ing a cast of 250 peo­ple rang­ing from 2-60 years old.

Au­di­ences mem­bers will be treated to over 30 dance rou­tines that ex­plore di­verse gen­res and mu­sic.

Prin­ci­pal Saskia Turner said the show had some­thing for ev­ery­one, ‘‘from our lit­tle bum­ble bees and lady bugs mak­ing their de­but stage ap­pear­ance, to our more sea­soned adult tap­pers. We guar­an­tee you a great night of en­ter­tain­ment.’’

‘‘Desti­na­tion Un­known’’ will be at the new Port Dou­glas Evac­u­a­tion Cen­tre, lo­cated at Port Dou­glas State School on Fri­day, Novem­ber 29 and Sat- ur­day, Novem­ber 30.

‘‘Bod­ies in Mo­tion Dance School would like to thank Com­mit­tee in Mo­tion Inc for their con­tin­ued sup­port of the an­nual end of year con­cert,’’ Ms Turner added.

‘‘With­out their fund­ing, the school wouldn’t be able to stage a pro­fes­sional the­atri­cal show for the com­mu­nity.

‘‘As the only pro­duc­tion of this stan­dard in the area, boast­ing au­di­ence num­bers of up to 600 per night, the sup­port from the lo­cal com­mu­nity is al­ways out­stand­ing.’’

Not only does the com­mit­tee fundraise all year for this event, but they also of­fer small per­form­ing arts grants to lo­cal youth.

Any­one in­ter­ested in ap­ply­ing for the com­mit­tee’s small per­form­ing arts grant should visit www.cimo­ to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.

Tick­ets can be pur­chased online from www. try­book­

For the early birds, there will be a can­teen where can pur­chase din­ner and snacks, and there will be a fully li­censed bar.
