“Dance, dance otherwise we are lost!”

_MG_5590

2012 has been so much about dance for me…thankfully!

I made the following clip in honour of the wonderful people that I dance with at Body Electric and the prolific amount of work that teacher Jade Duffy does in bringing people back to dance, or perhaps TO dance for the first time in their lives – and makes it accessible.

It’s something special.

Dance, dance otherwise we are lost.

Don’t forget to move your bodies people. Be free. Be adventurous. Be alive!

Your body was made to move, give yourself the gift of moving as freely as you can this new year! Your body will thank you!

Happy New Year all. xo

Body Electric Megapixels live!

Body Electric put on another great show in April 2012 at The Palace Theatre, Melbourne.

Ever wondered what goes on backstage at one of these epic performances?

Well see the video below for a glimpse into the preparation of one group…. The Megapixels.

It was  a night of vibrancy. Characters, colour and charisma.

What else would you expect from the Body Electric crew?!

And check out the super cute song on the clip ‘Girl looks like a robot’,  by jjj unearthed group, Tricksters

Body Electric Dance Off 2011

Well you’ve gotta be in it to win it, as they say.

And if you don’t happen to win, you have a hell of a ride getting there. And after-all OTHER people say that it is the journey that counts.

No regrets for these Body Electricians!

These pictures are just a sneak peak at the backstage preparation and fun that goes into the full show that is Body Electric.

‘Fright Night’, Body Electric Dance Off  2011

The Palace Theatre, Bourke St, Melbourne.

180 odd dancers (in more ways than one!)

Sell out show.

Where else would you want to be?

Nowhere.

Bodyelectric!….can you feel it?

If you haven’t yet experienced the BODYELECTRIC, it has been known to cause quite a sensation. Led by choreographer and teacher Jade Duffy, 6 to 9 groups of dancers are taken through their paces for a term of priming them for a final competitive performance between the groups.

But the main focus in this arena is fun. There is no shortage of colourful characters, costumes and choreography. It was my own involvement in Bodyelectric that sparked my interest in photographing this unique group of performers. See the Bodyelectric website for some of my previous images of costumed groups.
