The young ladies of the Khandallah Ballet Academy are tying their dancing shoes for this year’s end-ofyear production which is set to be a cultural kaleidoscope. The show will feature a colourful mixture of classical and character performances with dances from Hungary, Russia and Poland. “It’s a beautiful show,” Carolyn Mckeefry, Khandallah Ballet Academy and dance teacher, says.
“All our students, aged five to 20, will be dancing so it’s good to watch their development through the different ages. “Our annual performance has always been a highlight and I have many dance students coming back for them because they just love it.” For high school senior Carys Beddow and first year university student Katya Sellem the upcoming show will be their graduation
performance as they reached their Advanced 2 level at the Khandallah Ballet Academy. “Getting to perform in the show is a highlight, really,” Carys says. Khandallah Ballet Academy will perform at the New Zealand School of Dance, 11 Hutchison Rd, Newtown on December 3, from 3pm. Tickets will be available at the box office half an hour before the show.
