Move Through Life Dance Company

The aim of the company is to give adult dancers an opportunity to perform and to continue to develop their artistic practice, even though they probably have another career. We believe that being a dancer can be part of your identity without having to commit your whole life to dance.

We are proud to be a dance company committed to body diversity, and encourage dancers of all ages, shapes, sizes.

Main season of the Company, featuring choreography by Jo McDonald.

Here there is no ‘about’. Just music & dance. Classical, jazz & blues. When Chopin, Nina & Beth Hart meet, a synthesis of ballet, contemporary, flamenco & jazz emerges. A language of motion is created. Drawing on lived experience, WIndswept avoids narrative to discover that we all move through life.

Tickets $35 ($31.50 concession or group 6+)

Blackwood Memorial Hall
21 Coromandel Parade, Blackwood

Performed by our Mature Company, The Ruby Room will take you back to the 1920s and 1930s in a riot of jazz music and dance.
