A collaboration between high school dance teachers, VAST is a cel- ebration of dance and a chance to foster a dance community among students. Next Thursday's workshops and rehearsals will culminate with the public performance at 7pm, which will feature about 15 performances from dance groups from eight schools: Motueka High School, Wai- mea College, Garin College, Nayland College, Nelson College, Nelson Col- lege for Girls, Salisbury School, and Marlborough College for Girls. VAST co-ordinator, Motueka High School dance teacher Emily Tait, said the show will feature styles from hip-hop to ballet, jazz, Broad- way, contemporary, and Pasifika. She said the show builds on last year's inaugural VAST, and features more schools and dancers. But it is more than just the performance. During the day, the dancers will have workshops in styles they are less likely to have encountered: belly dance, circus skills and Nia, a blend of tai-chi movement and dance. The day's aim is to create a dance community by giving dancers from all across the region a chance to get to know each other as they share their skills. In the evening, the dancers will take over the dress circle of the Theatre Royal to watch their peers perform. VAST is at the Theatre Royal on Thursday, August 22. Tickets through ticketdirect.co.nz. $16.50 for adults/ $11.50 student/child plus booking/ ticket fees).
