Va Va Voom to light up stage at Tuggerah

Featured performer Rebecca Selley

After two years of not performing due to COVID-19 restrictions, the talented dancers and performers of Lee Academy at Tuggerah will present Va Va Voom, a spectacular dance and aerial show, on May 14.

Artistic director and choreographer Amé Delves said one of the production rooms at the academy had been transformed into a performance space, complete with seating and complex lighting and sound systems, for the show.

“I do a lot of choreography at the academy and wanted to keep the performers engaged during lockdowns, so I devised this show for them,” Delves said.

“Some of them are Cirque du Soleil performers, so there will be a lot of aerial acts, contortion and acrobatic work, along with lots of dance – from tango to jazz.

“The show will take an old-school cabaret format and is sure to delight audiences.”

There will also be live vocals, including a performance by special guest, Rebecca Selley, who played the lead on Broadway in the Australian show Burn the Floor.

“It was really important for these performers to stay active during the downtime,” Delves said.

“With their creative outlets shut down, many suffered depression and were unable to perform.

“All paid work closed down and the arts entertainment and events sector received little to no government funding.

I wanted to give them something to work on to get the momentum going again.

“It was also really important to keep their bodies performance ready.

“Everyone needs entertainment.

“Dancers live to perform and to make the world a better place; they perform to excite people and make them feel more connected and energised.”

The show will be performed at 5pm and 7.30pm on May 14 at Lee Academy, 3 Teamster Cl, Tuggerah.
