    Darwin and Casuarina

    Throughout the year of 2014

    Tracks Dance is exploring new ways to place performance into public spaces, making them come alive to performers and audiences alike. The build-up is around the corner and the search for COOL takes on a significance bordering on survival tactics!

    “A pop-up party for fabulous people full of glitz and glamour, giving Darwin’s social butterflies a night with plenty of killer beats and a bit of the unknown. It’s an interactive dance party that is all about showing the best local acts as well as bringing great national acts, co-host Miss Ellaneous said. DJ Kitty Glitter is flying in, who has played for Lady Gaga – and she will be fantastic. DJ Kitty Glitter is Australia’s most renowned drag DJ, having just finished an international tour. Among the dancing will be a performance from Tracks Dance Company and a bodybuilding display.”

    “We would like to extend a huge thank you to your dancers and yourself for attending the Australasian Rehabilitation Nurses’ Association 24th Annual Conference on 17 October 2014.  The performance was outstanding and the dancers were inspirational for what can be achieved as one matures in age. All who attended went away expressing the good fortune to have been able to be a part of the performance. Again thank you for your time and we wish the Grey Panthers and yourself all the best for the future and we hope you continue to grow and entertain people within the community. Warm regards VICTORIA ROBINSON On behalf of THE ARNA CONFERENCE COMMITTEE
