The Baker Rolls Cinammon Buns From Dough, Choreographer Julia Van Camp

Kajaani Dance Festival 2021, 300€ stipend

Arktiset askeleet 2020, 300€ stipend

Wow, how nice is was that the dance started with the pain of making dough. The overall dance was enjoyable, funny and artfully communicated. These young dancers were together wonderfully and the theme was well developed with them together, with supporting it strongly. Every dancer knew perfectly her own part in the whole, which contributed to the great success of the piece. The costuming worked well and emphasized the dancers' roles. The theme of the dance was hilarious and stylishly achieved.

Performing Arts Adults Oulu 2020

Dancer’s feedback from competition:

I felt warmly surrounded. I discovered unknown emotions. The feeling of being on stage was positive and want to do it again.
