Description

Part ‘theatre performance’/ part ‘get up and dance’, The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair is an all ages dance event that immerses everyone in an evening of old time and new time dance floor magic. The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair was commissioned by Bleach* Festival, premiering as part of the 2015 event. Inspired by the rise and fall of the social dance scene, from the 1920’s to today, this show is a large-scale, site specific and participatory performance work, celebrating that the dance circuit is alive and ready to kick up the dust again! Each performance features local dance legends, a charming MC, light footed guest stars and a heart stopping musical mash up where the live band will make sure you get the joint jumpin'! This is the night to put on your dancing shoes and hit the floor for everything from the two-step to the twerk, the tango to a cheeky cha cha, a waltz, swing step or free styling funky soul train groove. Throughout the performance you will go-go your way through a celebration of decades of dance, mixed with a sharing of heart-warming real stories from local community dance legends. By the end of the night your dance card will be full. You will be armed with the ultimate tool kit of essential dancing moves. Plus together we will create the newest social dance to hit the circuit full www.inauguralannual.com CREATIVE TEAM Creative Producer: Kate McDonald Director: Ian Pidd Choreographer: Bec Reid Musical Director: Nick Lavers Art Director: Elizabeth Woods Starring: The Rooftops, Nadia Sunde, and Kristian Šantić, Designer: Byron Coathup Stage Manager: Wendy Silvester Production: Bleach Festival, QLight, Tone Pacer Audio Photography: Darcy Grant Videography: Box Media House Community Cast: 80 amazing local dancers from 20 to 84years from across the Gold Coast
