Students from one of Malta’s leading dance schools, Seed Dance Studios, are soon to hold a unique dance event, following their performance as part of the final of a major dance competition in New York.
Led by the school’s artistic director Marisha Bonnici, 14 young dancers from Seed were selected through a series of regional semi-finals held worldwide to be a part of the New York final of the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP), where they performed ‘In the Village’.
Fresh from this one-of-a-kind experience, students from #TeamSeed are now preparing for a new show that will be performed at St Agatha in Rabat on 22 June. The hour-long performance and awards ceremony will showcase classical ballet, contemporary dance, Spanish dance and street jazz routines, performers will include students graduating from the school and who are moving on to full-time international vocational training. The event will be free of charge, but booking is essential.
While giving the opportunity for younger students to aspire to the successes of these Seed graduates, the show also aims to encourage those who may be considering attending the school over the next scholastic year.
Seed Dance Studios is home to one of just 10 Royal Ballet International Scholars in the world, and many students have successfully auditioned for various summer intensives and short term visits to the Royal Ballet School, Paris Opera, Princesse Grace Monaco, English National Ballet School, Rosella High Tower Cannes, American Ballet Theatre, Ballettchule Theatre Basel, Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary, and Elmhurst Ballet School.
The Seed Dance Studios performance and awards ceremony will be held at St Agatha in Rabat, at 6pm on 22 June. More information and ticketing details may be found by visiting the Seed Dance Studios Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pg/Seedancestudios/.
