Friends, family and supporters were in the house with The New Zealand Dance Company for a screening of New Zealand’s first dance film, Born to Dance, on the evening of the film’s New Zealand release.

Choreographed by world champion Parris Goebel, Born to Dance features some of the best hip hop dancers in the world.

Tu Kaea (champion hip hop dancer Tia Maipi) has the chance to audition for K-Crew, the best hip hop crew in the country, but he has to go behind the backs of his home crew and his best friend Benjy (Stan Walker: Mt Zion, The X Factor NZ). Things get even more complicated when he starts falling for Sasha (Kherington Payne: Fame, The Dance Scene), the girlfriend of K-Crew’s leader.

When Tu’s old crew and new crew clash, he has to make a decision that will change his life forever. Caught between who he is and who he wants to be, Tu must find the strength to make his own breaks.

This evening was a fundraising event for The New Zealand Dance Company. In January 2016, we will be taking our “hypnotic” new season, Lumina, to Germany and Holland. Each person, donation, ticket and raffle ticket purchased contributed to New Zealand dance being seen on the international stage.

This evening was complete with a mind blowing performance by Fresh Movement, Born To Dance actor John Tui being in the house and speaking about the film with us, Seresin Estate wine and St Pierres Sushi.
