Bodies get motion
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.cimotion.com.au to download an application form.
Tickets can be purchased online from www. trybooking.com/DPIU
For the early birds, there will be a canteen where can purchase dinner and snacks, and there will be a fully licensed bar.
