The young dancers at Stars of Tomorrow have shown poise, gracefulness and patience far beyond their years. They have learned to listen carefully and follow instructions. They have donned beautiful costumes, and performed on a big stage in front of an appreciative audience. The Stars of Tomorrow 2016 show, which runs till Saturday has proven the value of dancing for children’s enjoyment and personal growth.
Involving 350 pupils aged 3-17, Stars of Tomorrow is a joint production between a cross section of Harare’s dance studios with oversight from Dance Trust of Zimbabwe.
Programme A includes pieces from Carol Henchie-Muchatuta, Drastic Gymnastics, Gail Boardman, Angela Klassen and Eileen Fleet dancing schools. Programme B showcases pupils from Clare Hingeston, Dance Expression, Margan Bower, Lyfstyle Studio, Debbie Fleming Dance, and M&M Dance Factory. St Giles Special School dance group will also perform a piece taught to them during their regular dance classes with the DTZ Outreach Project. And, keeping with tradition to present more accomplished dancers to inspire the younger pupils, National Ballet Academy dancers Sakiko Hatakenaka and Peter Lenso will perform two classical ballet pas de deux (two dancers dancing in sync) choreographed by Faye Jackson.
Hip hop, tap, ballet and everything in between – it’s a not-to-be-missed show that will inspire and delight audiences young and old.
