Elements - Hero 01.jpg
The Elements

70 dance students from 20 schools dance their way through water, earth, fire and air

The Malta International Arts Festival welcomes the opportunity to foster and promote young talent. Elements features over 60 students from 21 different local dance schools. Each school contributed a short routine that was filmed professionally in four different locations and edited to create one seamless choreography. As the title suggests, the concept for this video presents the four elements: water, earth, fire and air. The progress from one group to the next is achieved through transition sequences as the elements are transferred across the scenes.
