Keltikka Performance Dance Company is set in beautiful tropical Darwin, in the Northern Territory of Australia. Life is good, and here we can be our true creative selves. Start with Irish dance and see where it leads you, from traditional to contemporary, we combine many dance and movement forms to create 'fusion dance'. Come create magic with us and let your creative spirit soar.
Keltikka is a member of Ausdance (NT branch). Our dancers are available to perform at events as varied as the day is long. Please contact us for details.
Keltikka is also a member of Browns Mart Community Arts. Browns Mart is in itself a beautiful old building in what is slated to become the Arts Precinct of Darwin City.
Keltikka was launched in 2006 with a small group of dancers who love to dance. With only seventeen young dancers, of which only a handful had any real experience, we put on a Christmas Recital for friends and family after only ten weeks of classes. This was a tremendous experience for all of them. In the short space of time we had been together we had already been able to give them a sense of belonging, allowing them the freedom to explore what performing is all about. Since then we have gone on to many successful performances around Darwin. We also put on another concert at the end of 2007. Called Dreams, it was a wonderful 2 hour showcase of traditional and contemporary irish dance along with a few 'other bits' thrown in for a bit of variety.
Although predominantly traditional irish dance based, we also explore other forms of dance and movement and incorporate them into our performance pieces, thereby creating 'fusion dance'. Creative input is a big focus in our classes and everyone, no matter what age, is encouraged to put forward their ideas. Even if we can't use those ideas right now, we may possibly be able to use them in future performances.
We also offer a range of performances available to the general public. Weddings, Parties, School Fetes, Government and Corporate Events to name a few. Whatever you can think of we can probably accommodate your needs. Schools can also contact us to facilitate workshops during school hours.
We like to perform. Why else would we put in this much effort? There are many avenues available for performing for our dancers. Some dancers choose to join the Performance Company Class which dances at most of our major events, whilst others prefer to just dance at school fetes and other community events. There is also the opportunity to compete in the North Australian Eisteddfod, but that is once again entirely up to the dancer. Please fill in our Performance Proposal Form for more information on any of our performance services.
School fetes, some St Patricks Day celebrations and charity fundraisers tend to come in under this banner. Our traditional shows are perfect for a wide range of groups, including churches, retirement homes, local festivals, fundraisers, and sports clubs. All dancers have the opportunity to dance at these events.
Our Performance Company usually does these events. Our dancers can help bring the lively dance and music of Ireland to your event or attract attention to your trade show booth. There is a high level of dedication required on the part of company members and this is reflected in the style of performance they deliver. Need a theme for a childs birthday party? Think about having an irish dance party.
Let us add a touch of Irish tradition to your special day! These appearances are most often 15-45 minutes long. We can simply come and put on a performance for you and your guests or we can add a short dance lesson to it for your guests. We are available to the bride and groom before your big day too. Want to surprise your guests (or the bride and groom)? No problem. Just let us know and we will work discreetly to plan this special entertainment experience.
Let us help you with your entertainment at your next event. We can also organise team building events for groups who need to get to know one another better. Dance is fun and entertaining and is sure to get peoples attention. Awards nights, corporate dinners and lunches, and trade show participants can all take advantage of our services.
