On Friday 17th March, Newcastle University’s Dance Society is set to perform its 10th annual student-led production, Dancefest, at the Northern Stage Theatre.
“Can’t Stop The Feeling” is presented in 3 performances over 2 days; Friday 17th March at 7pm, Saturday 18th March at 2pm and at 7pm.
This weekend marks the most exciting event in the dance society calendar, promising to present a wonderful selection of dance masterpieces, from jazz to tap, ballet to street and many more.
Members are ready to take to the stage to showcase what they can do, having given up their precious time attending classes and learning choreography for this one moment to shine and sparkle on stage.
On top of this, the society shows off their competition dances, which have been incredibly successful throughout this academic year, winning a total of 18 trophies for Newcastle University.
Annabelle Spencer, the Show Coordinator, told us:
“This is my third and final dance show at Newcastle University and I’m super excited about our upcoming show”
Annabelle went on to explain how it was the 10th anniversary of the society. 10 Years of Dance at Newcastle, 10 years of enthusiastic committee members and of course 10 years of fabulous presidents all of which have resulted in numerous grand achievements.
A few of these include, being runner up in the National Society Awards 2016 and also winning Best Society Event for Newcastle Competition 2016, not to mention the countless number of trophies gained at competitions around the country across the decade. These achievements have contributed to the extraordinary growth of the society, bringing the total members to a high of 400 this year.
For those of you who wish to bag a seat, tickets are available at the Northern Stage box office and on their website. So if you fancy an evening of jazz hands and sass, you are interested in seeing what our society is all about or simply want to watch your friends dancing their socks off, then please come along and bring your fellow house-mates, course-mates, siblings, whoever. It is for sure a show for all the family.
