Dance from Far Horizons Spectacular: connecting community through dance
The Dance from Far Horizons Spectacular, Orange’s annual celebration of cultural diversity through the medium of dance, promises to be a feast of dance styles from across the globe.
A collaboration between Orange CultureHub, Orange Tribal Fusion and Orange City Council’s Migrant and Refugee Support Services, the Dance from Far Horizons Spectacular is about celebrating the richness of our culturally diverse community with an evening of fun and dance.
And it’s all happening on Saturday 21 September 2019 at Kenna Hall in Hill Street.
Starting at 6.30pm, the evening will feature numerous dancers and dance groups from Orange and elsewhere, said Orange Tribal Fusion dance teacher, Nicole Kennedy.
“There’ll be Fattisha Kumara with dance styles seen in Rio de Janeiro, Bronwyn Buasavahn from Canberra displaying a double sword solo dance and other groups such as Ghawazi Caravan from the Blue Mountains, starring Devi Mamak, Dancing with Sabrina’s dancers from Orange and Canowindra performing Bachata, Cha Cha , Argentine Tango and Salsa,” said Nicole.
“Local Tribal-Style Bellydance Group Orange Tribal Fusion will be dancing to Lombarda and La Revedere. The Shimmy Sista’s will be performing Oriental style bellydance with a solo performance by Ash. Guest group performers will be Azzire tribal from the South Coast, Mosaic tribal from Canberra, Bashira Bellydance from Bathurst, Onyx from Castle Hill and Aurora from the Greater MaCarthur area.”
All dancers are volunteering their time for the evening’s entertainment which will conclude with a dance party.
All it costs is just $2, and for you to bring a plate of food to share.
“It is a big sharing of multicultural food and it was very popular last year, we had the most sensational meal … the cheapest feed in town!” said Nicole, who particularly encourage new migrants to Orange to come along and meet others in the community.
For a night of spectacular colour, dancing and food, head along to Kenna Hall on Saturday 21 September at 6.30pm for a fun filled night of entertainment, good food, fun and dance! Cultural dress is encouraged.
