I had no idea that we even had a contemporary dance academy in Dubai until I saw this event advertised in DUCTAC's lobby. Which, I suppose, was the point of the event. And, while I admittedly have little exposure in general when it comes to contemporary dance, I was very impressed with the show put up by Contemporary Dance Dubai this weekend.
To musical backgrounds ranging from classical to dubstep, and with talents ranging from professional to beginner, they performed spectacularly choreographed sequences with near-perfect precision (perfect, in the case of the advanced and professional i.e. leading performers). The costume wardrobe was also very tasteful and simple, incorporating mainly solid blocked colors that chromatically and stylistically reflected the mood of each segment.
