9 Days to Go: JYDC Production

Posted by radio On April - 10 - 2018

Jozi Youth Dance Company (JYDC), presents their 4th annual production called Domaine, from 19 – 22 April 2018 at the Roodepoort Theatre.

Jozi Youth Dance Company is a one of its kind, platform for young dancers, exposing them to professional choreographers and dancers. They gain invaluable experience, performing to sold out audiences, preparing them for the cut-throat dance industry.

 

This is JYDC’s 4th season and promises to be one of their best yet. This year we present to you Domaine (translated from French, meaning “realms”).

 

Our dancers will involve the audience, taking them on a journey through different worlds, stepping seamlessly from one existence to the next.

 

Over the past 4 years, JYDC have welcomed young dancers from all over Gauteng in order to give them a platform to showcase their talent and inspire the next generation of professional dancers. Under the directorship of Jayd Swart, the company has grown, not only in number but also quality of dance.  “Young dancers need to be given the opportunity to show what they are capable of.  We train them in both technique and expression and motivate them to achieve new heights while preparing them for a future in dance” said Swart.

 

Domaine, the largest and most spectacular of shows produced by JYDC is guaranteed to set the stage on fire.  “This year, we have the most magnificent lineup of choreographers, each bringing their own distinct personality to the stage” said Swart.  Choreographers include, Shannon Glover, principle dancer from Johannesburg Ballet, Phume Sikhakhane and Kingsley Beukes, both cast members of Disney’s theatrical production of The Lion King currently performing in Asia, Evan Van Soest, professional dancer and choreographer, Cayley Hodson, resident choreographer of JYDC and Jayd Swart herself who is a well-established international contemporary dance choreographer.

 

As an added bonus, Bernice Silvius, ex-prima ballerina from Johannesburg ballet is training two young aspiring ballerinas, both pupils at Northcliff High School to perform a pas de deux from the famous Don Quixote with Conrad Nusser, principle dancer from Cape Town City Ballet and in true JYDC nature a student, Paige Sundelson, has been afforded the opportunity to choreograph a piece on her peers, also to be showcased in Domaine.

 

JYDC has opened up many doors for company members including a training tour to South-Korea in 2017.  This year, the production forms part of the Grahamstown National Arts Festival line-up.
