ADVERTISEMENT Dance chance sets direction Next move: Tangaroa College's Terry Morrison has his eyes set on a dance career. Go to manukaucourier. co.nz and click on Latest Edition to see the Topp Twins perform with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra PERFORMING WITH THE APO Dancing is the future for 16-year-old Terry Morrison. But for now the year 12 Tangaroa College student is just happy to be fine-tuning his moves for Fireworks which is on tomorrow at Manukau's TelstraClear Pacific Events Centre. The project between the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and Auckland University's dance faculty is another of the orchestra's community schemes. Terry is one of 100 stu- dents from Wiri Central and Pakuranga Intermediate schools, and Tangaroa Col- lege taking part in the proj- ect alongside Auckland Uni- versity dance students. I danced last year as part of the Sacre project with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra,'' Terry says. Before that I'd been involved in hip hop. When our drama tutor gave us the opportunity to be part of Fireworks I grabbed the chance even though it meant giving up months of Sat- urdays to rehearse.'' Bringing the talent together is choreographer Moss Paterson who's been working with the students since August. Tangaroa College was selected to take part as it has a very strong performing arts culture,'' Mr Paterson says. The piece that will be performed is called Poutama and refers to the stairs Tane travelled up to the heavens. It's a metaphor for obtaining greater knowledge. We are asking these stu- dents to perform at their very best with professionals and through that, showing them what is possible with art.'' Tangaroa College drama teacher David Riley says his students are natural dancers and love learning different styles of performing. I've seen a big change in the way the students feel about themselves. They have more confi- dence and self-belief. There is a real growth in their cre- ativity'' he says. Fireworks, set to Handel's Music for the Royal Fire- works, is part of this year's Southside Arts Festival. Being involved with the production has helped Terry decide on his career. When I finish high school I hope to study dance full- time and make a career out of it,'' he said. This experience has given me such a massive boost.'' Fireworks is on at 7pm tomorrow at TelstraClear Pacific Events Centre. Tickets from $10, phone 966 1743 or go to ticketdirect.co.nz. IN BRIEF Fireworks moved Airport flight restrictions have forced a change of venue for the Papatoetoe 150th Community Fireworks night on Saturday. It will now take place inside the Manukau Velodrome at the Manukau Sports Bowl instead of Kohuora Park in Papatoetoe. Event organiser Lucy Bremner says nothing else has changed and the free family outing will begin at the planned time of 5.30pm with fireworks due to spark at 9pm. Parents are encouraged to make the most of the free event by bringing the kids and a blanket. Community run stalls and refreshments will be available. Ms Bremner says there are still spaces for entertainment groups and interested parties should contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
