Nelson's Theatre Royal was alive last week with the colour, sound and movement of the inaugural Vast Dance Festival, which celebrated the combined talents of high school students in the top of the south region.

The festival showcased performances by students from Waimea, Nayland and Garin colleges, Nelson and Marlborough boys' and girls' colleges, Salisbury School, Motueka High School and the combined secondary schools kapa haka group Te Rourou Kura.

Nayland College took the prize for the most polished performance among a medley of ballet, capoeira, hip-hop, ballroom, tap and contemporary dance styles.

Nelson Mail photographer Patrick Hamilton captured some of the colour.
