I went to the New Zealand school of Dance’s latest studio performance – Insight – last night.

The dancers were 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year dance students; the dances were put on in the main studio.

Two ballet pieces stay in my mind: Fractals and Facade.

Fractals is a neo-classic ballet piece choreographed by Parrish Maynard to music by Kenneth Kirschner. The 3rd year dancers executed this exciting piece really well – strong, good lines, and a controlled passion.

Facade is another neo-classical ballet piece: choreographed by Jeffrey Tan to music by Samuel Barber. Elisabeth Zorino and William Fitzgerald had a lovely connection and really did justice to this lyrical pas de deux.

Luis Piva Jnr danced James’ solo from La Sylphide Act I: strong, powerful and nice lines.

These NZSD studio performances are a real bargain: excellent dancing at gold-coin donation prices.
