Join us for our 5th concert in the Salon with Ross Alley. The Tait Memorial Trust has great pleasure in announcing this year’s showcase of its awardees in an evening concert on 11 April at Leighton House entitled “Dancing in the Salon”. Artistically directed by Chad Vindin and presented by Ross Alley, our extremely talented young Australian performers will sweep you off your feet – literally – as they inhabit the rhythms of the dance in this year’s Salon Spectacular.
The great Russian-American choreographer George Balanchine once said “Dancing is music made visible” and, of course, it is the intoxicating power of musical rhythm that articulates both art-forms. “Dancing in the Salon” promises to be a hugely enjoyable celebration of dance-defined delights performed by the Tait Memorial Trust’s musical awardees. All dancers need partners and so too do our artists. We look forward to your support on 11 April.
