Members of Canberra's own youth choreographic ensemble, Quantum Leap, are busy preparing for 'Hot to Trot' - a project where they create short works to be performed by other Quantum Leap dancers. For some, this is their first choreographic effort; while some have choreographed works for several years before they set off for tertiary dance studies.
The project aims to develop choreographic awareness in young dancers as soon as possible — moving beyond just ‘doing the steps’, to making meaningful dance.
This year, Hot To Trot will include new short works by:
Simon Read & Jake Kuzma
Emma & James Batchelor
Moriya Rosenberg & Lauren Grow
The short works will be shown in a one-hour performance repeated four times over the weekend Saturday and Sunday 29 & 30 November.
Hot to Trot is a favourite with Canberra audiences and in recent years has played to sell out crowds.
Bring your family and make a night of it!
"An evening of dance of surprising depth and quality, performed with commitment and passion."
