The year 2005 saw Flare grow beyond all expectations. Our membership grew beyond 300 members, which injected a lot of talent into the club. This allowed us to establish our unique style of dance in the clubbing and performing industry. In addition, a large cast of 60 dancers took to the stage to present Limelight 2005. This year's production saw a new generation of dancers and a number of first-time choreographers perform to an audience of 1000 people over 3 nights. There was a diverse range of dance styles in this production, including hip hop, 18th century contemporary, jazz, funk, interprative dance, ballet and improvisation. Guest performances by Travel Art Dance Company and Jive added their own flavour to the production.
