Choreographer Jess Devereux, assisted by Kelly Beneforti, worked during the Term 3 school holidays with two groups (primary school age, and secondary school age) to devise, rehearse and perform two new contemporary dance works. The five-day intensive program was specially designed for young people who are passionate about dance, and who wanted to participate in a choreographic process leading to performance.
