Quick Steps School of Dance
"Quick Steps School of Dance is Adelaide's revolutionary teacher of traditional dance. Taking ballroom lessons from Adelaide's cold dance halls and into a funky, modern setting, we teach our students the hottest dance moves on a private lesson, group class and social basis. Whether it's to gain confidence or fitness, to impress at a wedding or to get out and meet new people in style, Quick Steps does away with the idea that ballroom dancing is for the old by teaching fast paced, seductive and foxy moves that extend beyond the traditional waltz.
Our lessons are taught privately for extra support and attention; while also offering additional group or social classes to provide our students the opportunity to practice what they've learned with friends and other dance students."
Freefall is an exhilarating exploration of bizarre and everyday fears, human quirks and truths. Using their extensive skills in circus and physical theatre, Gravity & Other Myths showcase the inner workings of seven young characters as they learn to engage with their fears.
Through spoken word and the unique physicality of each character, Freefall will transcend the conventional concept of fear to show the deeper complexities and resulting everyday habits that fear evokes in us all, defining how we act, who we are and whether we feel we do or don’t belong.
Winner of the 2010 Adelaide Fringe Best Circus Award.
This performance has been confirmed for Wednesday, 30 March at 1.15pm. With performers coming from a Cirkidz background, Freefall uses physical theatre to transcend the conventional concept of fear. Tickets for this performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre are $15pp

Adelaide's very own independent, not-for-profit, multi-arts centre, that brings you a vast array of artistic, cultural and entertainment productions, events, exhibitions and gigs!
Higher Ground Inc is located in the heart of Adelaide's 'Cultural & Entertainment Quarter' at 9 Light Square (CBD - West End).
Higher Ground Inc is a not-for-profit incorporated arts association. That means any profits made go back into supporting additional projects - like our in-house, monthly visual arts and music event Elevation - marketing & publicity, and investment in equipment & technical resources for our users.
Our aim is to support, promote and develop artistic and cultural activities through a broad spectrum of artistic genres with a focus on supporting emerging artists and helping them to reach their audience. We do this by providing a venue that is centrally located, accessible, affordable and flexible. Allowing artists to take their internal vision and transform it into a performance within a suitable space, so that Adelaide’s savvy & arts hungry audiences can access it is what we are all about.
Finding and resourcing that space has been our driving goal ever since our inception in 2004, and has taken us from Pulteney St, to the Old Imax Cinema in Rundle St, and since February 2008 to our new home here in Light Square. We have found this to be an ideal space, that has allowed us to create three unique spaces with a variety of uses - the Main Theatre, ArtBase and ArtCafe.
Higher Ground Inc's programming style is varied across most genres, allowing for artists from diverse artistic disciplines to find a "home base" for themselves and their work. It allows us to continue supporting the arts industry here in Adelaide, and to support Adelaide's diverse artistic communities to continue growing, connecting and creating!
