TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2018 Connecting Your Community CITY 2SURF with Les Mills Chance to dance with the stars of ballet • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding NOT EVERY aspiring ballet dancer can say they have been selected to perform with the Royal New Zealand Ballet. But Parklands’ Anna McKey was one of the lucky ones chosen to dance in the company’s rendition of The Nutcracker that opened last week. The 13-year-old was chosen alongside 60 children to feature in the production at the Isaac Theatre Royal. The children will play the roles of mice, party girls, bonbons and fairies. Anna was picked to play the role of one of the Mouse King’s minions and dance in one of the major scenes where the Mouse King fights The Nutcracker. She said she was very excited to get on stage and see the Royal New Zealand Ballet dancers perform beside her. “This is definitely really exciting because I have never been able to do a performance with the Royal New Zealand Ballet,” she said. Anna said her dream would be to have a career in dance and is looking at auditioning for the New Zealand School of Dance in the future. •Turn to page 5 Bus stop controversy Location of Prestons Rd stop doesn’t suit everyone.

The Aranui Community Touched project is planned for Fridays from 5-7pm after that time frame was identified by police as having increased anti-social behaviour. The time was highlighted in a report presented to the Coastal- Burwood Community Board last week. The predominantly touch rugby programme is planned to be launched in the first term of next year. It will run as a joint collaboration between police, Aranui Community Trust, Touch Canterbury, Canterbury Sport and Touch New Zealand. Touch New Zealand’s partnership manager Sandi Hackett said from liaising with Accident Compensation Corporation and police, Aranui was identified as one of the targeted areas for anti-social behaviour. •Turn to page 6 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
