Short + Sweet Dance 2014

Filter by:

Short+Sweet Dance swings into Auckland IN September with 27 bite-size performances across the weeklong festival.

Running from 16-21 September at The Performing Arts Centre of Auckland (TAPAC), Short+Sweet Dance features works from more than 30 different choreographers, and with each piece lasting up to 10 minutes, each night audiences see up to 14 unique dance works in 90 minutes.

Short+Sweet Dance is part of Short+Sweet Festival Auckland and follows a fortnight of theatre and a week of music performances. Festival Director Sums Selvarajan says Short+Sweet Dance is a feast of styles – including ballet, hip-hop, R&B, jazz and more – and the next performance is only ever 10 minutes away! At the end of each night, the audience votes for their favourites to go forward to the gala final.

Short+Sweet Dance Artistic Coordinator Jessie McCall says the event offers audiences a truly rewarding artistic experience.S+S Dance 2014 | Group 1
