The Bridgetown Theatre Company (BTC) will be among the local acts showcasing their talents on this year’s Fringe programme of the Baxter Dance Festival on Saturday from 14:00.

The BTC dancers will be performing their original dance drama Cape dances through the ages.

The Baxter Dance Festival aims to provide emerging and established dance companies and choreographers with an opportunity to present their works. This includes work by youth groups, dance schools, school groups and traditional dance groups. BTC has participated in the festival since 2009.

Cape dances through the ages is made up of various dance styles synonymous with the people of the Western Cape. These styles are strung together by a story of a mother and daughter who share their dance memories while going through photos.

The production stars Jaydine Ross, Ashlyn Daniels, Nicole Ross, Amy du Plooy, Cameron Toerien, Caelina-Joy Charles, Tegan Roberts, Jolene Daniels, Wyden Adams, Emile Petersen, Clint van de Broeck, Kaylam Jacobs and Dillon Paulse with choreography by Jaydine Ross and Emile Petersen.

The teenage dancers have all sacrificed their school holiday to prepare for the show. Despite using a lot of their free time to practise dancing, they have all passed their exams, proving that hard work, determination and passion are the keys to success.

With BTC, they aim to affect those around them in a positive manner through the performing arts. V
