    Welcome to Dance Grad 2010, our final performance season for this year. We have had a busy year with many rich performance opportunities for our students.

    In February, internationally renowned Aerial artists Kim Stokes and Les Livesey presented their final MFA performance at The Brisbane Powerhouse with current students performing alongside industry specialists. Soon after, Expressions Dance Company offered opportunity for students to perform alongside the company in their Launchpad season. This is a valuable ongoing relationship with Expressions.

    Throughout this year, our second year students have been working with choreographer Rosetta Cook and composer Elena Kats-Chernin in the development of a new work, Little Green Road to Fairyland for the Brisbane Music Festival in 2011 whilst our third year students toured to the Guandong Modern Dance Festival for classes, workshops and performances representing QUT to international audiences. also taking our students to international shores was a new cross-cultural dance work Standing in line in order of height - created collaboratively by QL2 Centre for Youth Dance in Canberra and Maya Dance Theatre in Singapore. Both Education and Performance students have been supported to dance in QL2s Quantum Leap at the Playhouse season led by australian choreographers and QL2s On Course tertiary dance students choreographic season.

    All of our first and third year education students performed in the Out of the Box Festival at the Queensland Performing arts Centre with works created for them by guest choreographers Grant McLay and Larissa Thynne. Larissas work was invited to be performed again at the opening of the Brazil Central 2010 Congress. On home turf, our third year performance students presented a season of their own choreographic work in the Woodward Theatre with full production support. This is a yearly event and supports the students choreographic practice from the studio through to production in the theatre. We are so pleased to be able to congratulate Alexander Bryce for his success in being awarded the prestigious Patricia Macdonald Memorial Foundation Scholarship for excellence in his studies. This scholarship is the legacy of internationally respected teacher and examiner, Pat Macdonald to support dance and the arts.

    Dance Grad 2010 welcomes back Samantha Williams who has choreographed One Way - a rhythmically and stylistically challenging contemporary work for our first year students. I have had the pleasure of working with our second year students in creating as velvet empties into purple and Csaba Buday has created a new work Glimmer for our third year students. The third years have also been exposed to the thinking and processes of emerging choreographer Daniel Jaber whose work Stoic extends both their technical and artistic skills base as they prepare to enter the industry as young professional dancers.

    We hope you will enjoy this evening of new and exciting dance works and thank you for being a supportive audience.
