A day in the life in a Road Cone


Dancing through the rubble with Zedcreek Dance

Kelsey Davidson, a young entrepreneur who recently turned 21 is the founder of Zed Creek Dance, a successful modern dance school based in Fendalton, Christchurch.

All of Kelsey’s choreography is stamped with her unique diverse style of modern dance.

The school, in Kelsey’s eyes is not just about the perfect pirouette but also with a larger focus on creativity, confidence and expression.

The dance school arose right after the Christchurch Earthquakes, an unlikely time for a start-up business to flourish.

Within the span of 2 years, the dance school has expanded to 70 students and growing.

Kelsey prides herself as a promoter of our new and dynamic city of Christchurch and serves as an inspiration to future entrepreneurs.

Zed Creek Dance is about to launch their much anticipated year-end original production entitled ‘A day in the life in a Road Cone’.

Be prepared to be inspired and entertained.

The show is a first in New Zealand, inspired by the Christchurch earthquakes but with a whimsical and comical spin.

It epitomises the feelings and emotions experienced by Kelsey during the Earthquakes and best represents the potential and positivity she sees in Christchurch.

The production is a montage of exciting pieces with quirky characters born out of Kelsey’s imaginative mind.

Kelsey alongside her children will take us on a journey where we will experience the Christchurch Earthquakes through the eyes of Helius, the Road Cone.

Accompanying the choreographed pieces are multi-media and animation crafted by Byron Davies from Davies Video Productions.

A highlight of the show will feature dancing against the backdrop of the Christchurch City skyline.

This would have been possible without the support of property developer, Ernest Duval, giving the opportunity of dancing on top of Christchurch’s now tallest building.

Where: Elmwood Theatre
When: Friday 13th December 5pm
Saturday 14th December, 12noon and 3.30pm
