Sweets 1,2,3

Press Release

Kilda Northcott Youth Dance Company

Sweets 1,2,3

Fringe Dance Performance
24-25 February 2006
Wellington Performing Arts Centre

Senior dance artist Kilda Northcott will lead her own company of dancers in an evening of contemporary dance featuring the choreography of Celine Cattoen and Sandra Bourguignon, with additional material by Claire Martin. The name Sweets 1,2,3 was chosen to reflect the diversity of the choreographic material and the enormous commitment and enthusiasm of the dancers.

The Company, founded by Ms Northcott in 2004 to develop young dancers and choreographers, performed two shows last year including X-Static Flow, for the 2005 Dance Your Socks Off Season.

The group have gradually built up a repertoire of original works, including dances that have been co-devised by Company members. Recently, the Company has widened its scope to include some more experienced dancers in its ranks.

Ms Northcott will perform a solo as part of the programme.

Reservations can be made through the Wellington Performing Arts Centre:
