August 28, 2014





KENDRA J Horsburgh along with Blaze team, recently gave a stunning dance performance during the ongoing Qatar Summer Festival 2014 at Exhibition Centre.

The team leader and choreographers of the show, while talking to Qatar Tribune said, 'She tries to find ways of conveying the urban language through her dance forms, which is deeply rooted in her own experiences of life.

Luxembourg-based British national Horsburgh, said that she enjoyed performing with her team of dancers in front of audiences in Qatar and was happy to receive a favourable response. According to her, she has been in the field of dance and choreography for ten years and has performed all around the world as a member of the Blaze team.

'We have especially rehearsed and choreographed steps for this performance and it has been well executed by our team, which consists of individually trained dancers from different nationalities. This aspect has added a certain personal flavour to the whole show and turned it into a successful one, commented Horsburg after the show.

Kendra is a core member of BirdGang, a dance company in tothe commercial and the theatre scene. She has performed for some of the UK's most successful hip hop dance companies including Boy Blue and ZooNation. She began her career at the Conservatoire de Luxembourg and has completed her BA Honours Degree at Middlesex University.

Another member of the team, Virgil Dey, with his dance name 'Sky Chief', is from Holland and has been on stage for the past 11 years as a full-time performer. He related an interesting story about how he turned into a break-dancer from a soccer player.

According to him, he met his future teacher and friend at a daycare centre. His friend was good at break-dance, while he knew some nice ball tricks. He ultimately traded his football skills for some dance moves and his new-found friend became a good friend, with whom he ended forming a dance group later.

Sunni Brummitt, a Malaysian- born British dancer, also gave a stunning performance during the show. While talking to Qatar Tribune, he said that he found Doha to be too hot outdoor. 'I just dance the way I like to do, that's my style, he said, while describing his dance style.
