Four schools back third annual festival
Kokoloco samba junior team prepare for The Canberra Latin Dance Festival 2014.
Latin dancer's feet are itching to move
at The Canberra Latin Dance Festival
2014 launching this weekend.
Festival organiser and owner of
Salsabor dance school, Andrea Paez,
said the festival had seen extraordinary
growth since its 2011 inception.
She said this year would bring event
more vibrant shows and fascinating
workshops than before.
"The scene is growing here in
Canberra," she said. "We have a record
number of international instructors
this year. All eight of them are the best
of the best in their genres."
Four Canberra Latin schools --
Subsdance, Kmotion and Kocoloco
and Salsabor -- will be involved and
will share and learn from more than 25
other schools coming from across
Australia, she said.
During the Saturday and Sunday
more than 40 workshops will be held
for different styles of dance leading
into busy evening showcases of
Under one roof at the ANU Sports

cha, salsa, zumba and newer

Director of Kocoloco Becky
Fleming said the festival would be
headlined by the best in international
styles. Her junior samba team, aged
5-10 years, would make its debut.
"They're all girls and hopefully all
10 of them will be able to perform,"
"I think they are the only junior
samba team in Australia."
"The junior samba girls are as
young as 5 years old but we have
students in their sixties too," she said.
"There is no other cultural style that
compares. You can really start at any
level and the music is so infectious. It
just makes you love it."
From October 17-19. Evening
performances Friday to Sunday
from 8pm-1am. Full festival pass

ALBUM: SONGS OF INNOCENCE, ARTIST: U2
New music by famous Dublin band remains relevant
You've got to hand it to U2 -- they've
never lost the passion or belief they
can still be the most accessible rock
and pop band in the world.
It's in their rather bombastic nature
to always put their egos on the line.
When their new album is as
polished and confident as some of their
earlier classics then they've got be
doing something right.
Songs of Innocence hasn't won
them any new fans in the Apple
community with their marketing
strategy of releasing an album to every
person on iTunes but this is largely
redundant if the songs are brimming
with U2-like energy and a capacity to
make the everyday feel so good.
Certainly some songs are up there
with the Dublin band's best work. Iris
(Hold Me Close) is about Bono's late
mother and is full of bouncy, melodic
guitars while being richly invested in
the importance of a mother-son
relationship and the obvious impact
it's had shaping the lead singer.
Volcano is easy to criticise as its
straightforward catchiness sounds like
an over-simplistic rock song yet the
striding bass and the Edge's rapturous
guitar make it impossible to dislike
(although the U2 hating society will
find a way).

CLASSIC FILM STORMS
INTO NPA FOR ONE-OFF
The film based on classic Australian
novel Storm Boy by Colin Thiele will
be featured at the National Portrait
Gallery on October 18. It is a gentle
rite of passage story of 10-year-old
Mike Storm Boy' Kingsley who lives
in isolation with his father in a beach
shanty. Despite the isolated lifestyle,
Storm Boy forms bonds with, on the
one hand, his pet pelican, Mr Percival,
and on the other, with Fingerbone Bill
(David Gulpilil), a Kunai Aboriginal
living on the local reserve. This film
touches on Aboriginal culture, respect
for the environment and the condition
of being an outsider in a rapidly
changing world. The movie screens on
Saturday, October 18, from 3pm to
4.30pm. For more information call
6102 7000 or visit
