Photo: NICOLA MURPHY Go to www.westernleader. co.nz to watch a trailer for Short + Sweet. By NICOLA MURPHY A dance competition offering bite- sized performances in a range of styles has made its way to New Zea- land. Te Atatu Peninsula resident Carrie Rae Cunningham is the pro- ducer of the first ever Short + Sweet Dance show in the country. It runs from February 7 to 11. It features all genres, styles and dancers' abilities but they all have one thing in common: Each per- formance cannot be longer than 10 minutes. The Short + Sweet concept began in theatre and soon moved into dance with festivals in Sydney, Mel- bourne, Canberra and Malaysia among other places. Short + Sweet Dance runs over four nights and features 100 performers. There was a huge amount of interest,'' Mrs Cunningham says. A lot of performers are taking quite a risk which is what they should be doing. The good thing about Short + Sweet is that it provides a platform for experiment which many choreographers then use to develop a larger work.'' Artists include hip hop group Wasabi Dance Crew and a solo by Atamira Dance Company chor- eographer Maaka Pepene which explores the themes of stereotypes. He's pleased to be part of Short + Sweet because it features a huge range of voices and styles. The performances are from February 7 to 11 in the Auckland Town Hall concert chamber. The winning one or two works selected at the gala final on the last night will be invited to perform at several Australian Short + Sweet Dance shows. Go to www.the-edge.co.nz for tickets. The Western Leader has a double pass to the February 10 show to give away with two bags of Whitta- ker's chocolates.

Nolene Leech has just recently moved into her new two bedroom apartment at Selwyn Heights Village. Attracted by the great value of her new home (just $460k including oven, dishdrawer, fridge, heat pump, washing machine, dryer and an undercover lock-up garage), Nolene was also impressed by the cafe, spa, wellness centre and entertainment complex all on site. Moving out of her four bedroom home of 37 years was a big step for Nolene, but the rewards far outweigh the upheaval. Nolene's new life is just about to begin.
