DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY COMPETITION (article first published : 2005-05-20)

Taking place in Durban from May 7 to 28, the National Creative Arts Youth Festival was initiated by Professor Elizabeth Sneddon. Now in its 16th year, it is a celebration of the achievements of the youth of South Africa. Directed at young, predominantly school-going people, the festival has achieved remarkable success in building a broad multi-cultural base and participation.

Professional and amateur choreographers are given the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity in the NCAYF Dance Choreography Competition which takes place on May 22 at 10h00 at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.

The choreographers can enter amateur dancers in various age groups in solo, duet, trio and group sections in a variety of dance disciplines including Folk (Celtic, Spanish, Greek, Gumboot and Pansula); Contemporary (modern jazz and ballet); Classical (ballet, Indian and Spanish), and Traditional (Zulu).

Entry is free. More information from the Festival Director, Ann Curry, on 031 201 9312 or 031 661 751 or e-mail: ncayf@iafrica.com

The success and the meritorious educational goals of the Festival have been made possible by the emergence of like-minded sympathisers such as The Israel South African Foundation, The Aaron Beare Foundation, Pick ‘n Pay Retailers, The Anglo American Chairman’s Fund, The Fulton Trust, The National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, Distell (Pty) Ltd, The KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, The Durban Institute of Technology and The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.
