Feelings and ideas told through art of dance

Hastings Contemporary Youth Dance Company will be performing Beyond Words, an evening of innovative and original dancing this month.

The show runs on February 13, 14 and 15 at The Stables Theatre in Hastings Old Town.

Sue Marshall, the group’s artistic director, said: “Contemporary dance is an art form that uses movement to express feelings and ideas. These are well portrayed in works from different starting points using various movement styles.

“The dance pieces are supported by a wide variety of exciting urban, modern and traditional music from the minimalist music of Philip Glass and John Cage, through jazz to James Vincent McMorrow and more.

“The choreography is by the students as well as collaborations with myself and Joanna Thurston, making this a great evening not to be missed.”

Tickets are £12.50 for adults, £7.50 for Stables members, £7.50 for children and senior citizens. Ring the box office on 01424 423221 or log onto www.stables-theatre.co.uk.
