I can’t believe it’s already been six years of taking over the DanceZone at the iconic St Kilda Festival. This year our special guests were Mute Crew doing their special collab with Collektive and Kstar. We had a half hour slot from 5.30-6pm and it was so great dancing with the crew again and being able to give other dance crews of Melbourne to share their skills.

There’s always such a great atmosphere and an awesome crowd at St Kilda Fest It gets pretty crowded but the DanceZone area is always spacious and close to the different stage acts, food stalls and beach.

#FBF – My first dance performance post partum

So I found this post while cleaning up my drafts folder and I can’t believe I hadn’t published it!

These pics are from Sunday Feb 10th 2013, my first time performing again with Rewind Dance Crew after giving birth to Daniel.

It may not seem like that big a deal but for me it was a goal I had as soon as I found out I was pregnant!

And it was a lot of work.

I was exclusively breastfeeding at the time and the hubby and I had just started to get our sleep back when rehearsals began. It was worth all the effort in timing feeds, late night rehearsals and sweating my butt off to see smiles on the crowd’s faces again and share good times with these crazy cats.

IMG_1519 I love performing and Rewind has taught me so many things and really gave me the chance to come out of my shell (would you believe that I was the most shyest person on the planet before Rewind came along? And that may even be an understatement!).

I hope that one day if any of my kids are interested in dancing they’ll be lucky enough to be part of a positive and friendly crew they can share many exciting experiences with.IMG_1527IMG_1532

So grateful for this hands on hubby 🙂

This year’s St Kilda Fest will be on Sunday 14th of February and Rewind will again be taking over the DanceZone bringing you some new sets and performances by some of Melbourne’s finest dance crews.

The event is free and kid friendly so mark your calendars and we hope to see you there!
