Snap That- a dance show like no other….

Snap That- a dance show like no other….

In today’s society and generation, there are so many issues arising from technology.

A lot of progress has been made, but at what expense?

Do we talk to each other face to face or is it easier to snap chat a silly picture instead…. Do we have a topical debate on the news or do we passively aggressively tweet about it on our page? Everyone is too scared to put down the device and talk about it….. but AM Dance Collective isn’t.

They’re breaking new ground choreographically and visually, bringing you’re a story of excitement, sadness, fun, movement, and a message to boot.

Ariel Middlemiss has run the AM Dance Collective for the past 5 years, they’ve been part of collaborative projects around the Lower North Island, performed in Auckland, and debuted two shows in the NZ Fringe Festival.

This their third show, Snap That, is a dance show like no other and makes it’s debut at NZ Fringe Festival this month.

It runs 5 nights, March 13-17th, at Te Auaha.

She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

Max Rashbrooke Review: The King's Singers and Voices New Zealand

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. The latest incarnation of this six-strong male singing group includes Kiwi Christopher Bruerton, and it was a delight to hear him sing the solo on the achingly beautiful My Love Is like a Red, Red Rose.
