Choreo Cookies in Melbourne, August 2014

Wow. These ladies and gents are just as charismatic, in sync and totally jaw dropping as they are when you watch them on YouTube. Totally missing Rewind right now after watching the phenomenal Choreo Cookies on stage last Sunday night.

Congrats to all the crews who performed on the stage. Loved the energy, passion and talent.

I can’t wait to see what Baby D’s passion will be when he grows up!

2014 Australian Dance Crew Championships

 

Dance the school holidays away with the 2014 Australian Dance Crew Championships Melbourne Prelims
Presented UEG Events – Saturday 5th of July 2pm
Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC), Albert Park

Energy, entertainment and highly passionate dancers will be competing tomorrow at the Melbourne prelims for the 2014 Australian Dance Crew Championships which will be held at MSAC in Albert Park. I can’t wait for Toddler D to see all the talented crews from the juniors (7yo) through to the open age dancers. Daniel already loves to bop along to his favourite tunes (which at the moment is still Happy by Pharrell) so hopefully he’ll get excited by all the action tomorrow!

Tickets will be sold at the door so come along and support these dancers who have put in the long hours and rehearsal time doing something they love. Meanwhile check out the video above to get a feel for what will be on offer tomorrow, Saturday 5th of July. See you there!

a dance crew’s playground – October ’11 photo set

 

It was a dance crew’s playground in October ’11 with the likes of choreographers and dancers such as Jun Quemado (AHC2011 finals judge), Brian Puspos, Pat Lam, Andye J, Keone & Mari and JP San Pedro (Janet Jackson back up dancer) rockin’ Melbourne city. I was so excited to learn from all these amazingly talented people and hope to see them again…soon!

Which choreographer would you like to learn from here in Melbourne?

Circa 2003 – Rewind Reclaim Photo Set

Came across these photos today on my hard drive…a time when there was no Youtube, no Facebook and nowhere to watch dance but Video Hits, Rage and the music award shows that were shown on tv whilst we eagerly had our fingers on “record” in order to save them.
These photos show a time when there were only a few dance crews in the scene. Melbourne, and Australia for that matter is so blessed now to have so many events & classes where anyone with a passion for dance can take part and express themselves in a safe an encouraging environment. Thank you Rewind for such an unbelievable journey – let’s keep it alive <3
