Dance magic dance

5 September 2006

Kia ora,

Dance Your Socks Off! is here and it's the perfect excuse to get jiggy with Spring. There's a fabulous competition to win Tuesday (opening) night tickets to The Seeds of Love. Wednesday night sees the opening of the visual magic that is Beautiful City and that 80s tribute, In Bed with the Bitches is already booked out (you can still go on the waitlist).

Next week: Snapshots - a blast from the past explores dance comedy from the 40s, 50s and 60s and watch this space crosses dance with theatre and live musicians!

Don't forget the best thing since David Bowie in tights:
- season pass for Dance your Socks off! @ BATS - see 3 DYSO shows for only $30! mmmm!

So - competition question: who dances in The Seeds of Love? Correct answers go in the draw for two tickets to tomorrow's opening night. Winner informed Tuesday morning via email.

Love BATSxxxx
