RAD Australia unites 19 schools in one event

Royal Academy of Dance Australia Showcase 2017On Saturday, March 25, nearly 300 Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) students from Victoria and Tasmania came together to celebrate dance in the region at the RAD Showcase performance, which is now a key feature in the RAD dance calendar for the year. Held at the National Theatre in St. Kilda, the event was sponsored by the RAD Victoria/Tasmania Regional Advisory Panel as well as brands Energetiks and Capezio.

 

Nineteen schools performed varied pieces, from classical to contemporary and beyond. One of the highlights was the Tasmanian Youth Classical Ballet Company, which made the journey to Melbourne to perform. 26 students from six Tasmanian schools performed Didn’t Leave Nobody by Shayne Davies.
