Three dancers, 30 minutes, raising funds for Hospice is a unique fundraising event that features a half-hour ballet performance.
It stars Ōrewa dancers Bianca Lungu, 13, and Saskia Connor, 17, as well as 14-year old Lieselle Higgins from Mahurangi West, who will perform classical and neo-classical pieces.
The performance is a first from pilot dance studio The Dance Company, set up by former classical ballet dancer Rebecca Toms.
Rebecca has experience dancing freelance in both New Zealand and Australia.
“I wanted to see how The Dance Company went as a trial, and give young dancers the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be in a professional company where you audition, rehearse and perform,” Rebecca says. “These girls are so talented, and it feels good that our efforts are going to a cause that helps so many families.”
The three performers have been rehearsing twice a week for over a month at Silverdale Hall.
The event is on Sunday July 28 at Silverdale Hall. Funds raised from ticket sales go to Harbour Hospice, which includes Hibiscus Hospice.
