Start in the arts

THE Tim Draxl Performing Arts Fund officially launched its new logo and new mission last weekend.

Moving away from individual scholarships, the new Tim Draxl Performing Arts Fund will work to raise the profile of the performing arts in our region by creating learning and performing opportunities for young artists is the Snowy River Shire and wider region.

A 'mocktail' evening held at Rydges Horizons Snowy Mountains celebrated the Fund's re-launch and fantastic new logo, generously donated by Pepper Design's Simon Blazey.

The evening featured musical performances by talented young musicians Rory Maclean, Choeli Cooper, James Hines and Celia Dalby.

The weekend's two master classes; High Country Drama with Simon Burke and Finding Your Voice with Tim Draxl reaffirmed the Fund's commitment to their new mission.

Twelve young people attended the intensive masterclass with Simon Burke on Saturday.

This course was designed to hone young actor's stage presence, poise, performance and projection.

On Sunday eleven young people benefited from a full day's tuition aimed at finding and strengthening their voice for performance with Tim Draxl.

Following the weekend's successes, the Tim Draxl Performing Arts Fund is delighted to announce that Josh Horner will host a dance workshop in Jindabyne on June 21.

Josh is well known for his on stage performances in Billy Elliot and with the Australian Ballet, and as a judge on Dancing with the Stars.

Josh has extensive global experience as a dancer and choreographer and the Tim Draxl Performing Arts Fund is truly excited to bring him to the Snowy Mountains.

Full workshop details will be announced in the coming weeks.
