Dancers go up Queen St

Central Leader - - News -

A pa­rade of danc­ing along Queen St on Sun­day will kick off this year’s tempo dance fes­ti­val.

The fes­ti­val runs un­til Oc­to­ber 31 fea­tur­ing per­for­mances, work­shops and va­ri­ety shows in many styles.

Artis­tic di­rec­tor MaryJane O’Reilly says the pa­rade will hon­our Queen St’s ori­gins as a stream.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic are wel­come to join in.

The pa­rade starts at Queen El­iz­a­beth II Square at 12.30pm and ends with free events at Aotea Square.

Ms O’Reilly says the pro­gramme fea­tures a wide range of tal­ented dance artists, in­clud­ing Touch Com­pass, Back­Lit Pro­duc­tions, Michael Par­menter and Okareka.

“There are lots of op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­pe­ri­ence dance in lots of dif­fer­ent ways, as some­thing you do as well as some­thing you view.

“It’s a re­flec­tion of the solid ex­pe­ri­ence and tal­ent of the dance scene in New Zealand.”
