Grafton gets taste of Raw Dance
DANCING has never been so popular. Not since the days of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers has dancing been so cool.
If you enjoy the dance movies and TV shows coming out at the moment, you will absolutely love the Raw Dance Company's latest show Bang! Crash! Tap!
An energetic fusion of beat boxing, tap dance and drumming, the show teams up drummer Gene Peterson with TV show Australia's Got Talent's beat boxer Dr Rhythm and two Raw Dance Company dancers.
Dr Rhythm - described as a 'human drum machine'- has competed in beatboxing competitions world-wide and last year made the semi-finals in the London Beatboxing Championships.
Gene Patterson is one of Australia's best up-and-coming drummers, while dancers the Sintes Brothers are known for their high-energy blend of tap dancing and hip-hop.
Choreographer Andrew Fee said the four artists together were 'mind blowing'.
“The dancers display blistering speed and ground-breaking foot and hand techniques,” he said.
The 60-minute rhythm and dance extravaganza will be performed at the South Grafton High School hall on Tuesday night.
The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available now from the school office.
Tickets cost $10 for general admission and $15 for reserved seating, so get in quick before they sell out.
