Taite, 13, began with Irish dancing lessons, but now he loves Contemporary. We spoke with Taite and his mum Bethwyn about Taite’s dance journey and why he keeps coming back to our holiday workshops.
5 Minutes with Taite
I started at the age of 7 with Irish dancing as it took place in my school hall and I thought it was interesting. I then went onto other styles of dancing (Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz).
I love the freedom of movement and the joy of it.
Sydney Dance Company workshops are special because of how they explore dance styles. I love Contemporary dance. I also find the improvisation very fascinating to explore. The workshops are great as they are different and have something for everyone.
5 Minutes with Taite’s mum Bethwyn
Sydney Dance Company is world renowned – not only for its performances but also for its dedication to developing Contemporary dance and dancers, offering experience with a variety of great teachers.
He’s been to a few and each one has been great but very different. The last workshop exploring improvisation and developing choreography in teams is something quite unique – it focused not just on the legs and arms, it also focused on the mind and creativity.
Yes – they understand dance, kids and the artform. Taite is in safe and inspiring hands.
Summer Holiday Workshops run from 2 – 25 Jan 2018 in Walsh Bay, Parramatta and Penrith.
