‘Ruby Suite’ is one piece in a double bill presented by the NSA in collaboration with Moving into Dance Mophatong and the JYB as part of their annual production, Dance Spectrum, in The Mandela Theatre at the Joburg Theatre Complex from May 10 to 13. Photo by Carl Ballot.

The National School of the Arts will stage its flagship production, Dance Spectrum, from May 10 to 13 at The Mandela Theatre at the Joburg Theatre Complex.

A double bill and a trio of dance organisations make up the production which will feature an eclectic fusion of choreographic influences including pantsula, hip-hop as well as Chinese and Indian dance.

The show opens with Clara’s Journey, an adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Act 2, performed by learners from the National School of the Arts (NSA).

It is followed by an exciting restaging of Johannesburg Youth Ballet’s Ruby Suite in collaboration with the NSA and Moving into Dance Mophatong (MIDM).

“Dance Spectrum reflects the power of youth dance in the city,” said Brenda Sakellarides, the creative consultant of the production.

Clara’s Journey starts with a geography classroom daydream and develops into a kaleidoscopic adventure to exotic lands where choreographic surprises await you at every destination.

“Expect vibrant colours, dramatic dynamics and the excitement of a diverse dance palette where ballet, African, pantsula, Chinese, Spanish, contemporary and Indian dance find harmony with classical Russian ballet music.”

Ruby Suite is a mix of neo-classical ballet, contemporary, flamenco and hip-hop and features choreography by Laura Cameron, Alexandra le Maitre, Mary-Ann Mottram and Mark Hawkins.

Performances will be as follows:

• May 10 at 7.30pm.

• May 11 at 11am and 7.30pm

• May 12 at 3pm and 7.30pm.

• May 13 at 3pm.
