A celestial celebration of heavenly dance moves

Fancy a spell of break dancing, popping and locking? Perhaps the tap-tap-tap of fast-moving heels, the spring and sass of jazz? Or maybe pirouettes and pas de marché are more your pace?

No matter which style of dance you prefer, Mad Dance House is sure to have it covered at its end of year Hype Night concert titled Under the Milky Way on 14 December.

This is a night when dance students (some of them first time performers) and their teachers join Australia's Got Talent grand finalists Swagamama and AOB to bust some moves and help shift Brisbane's dance culture into the spotlight.

Under the Milky Way, as the name suggests, takes its inspiration from the night sky. And, of course, from the constellation of stars, their mentors, their protégés and their choreographers, who are taking centre-stage.

This special event will be hosted by sisters Candy B and DJ Busty Beatz.

Candy B is described as a 'big-assed rap diva' who is also a NIDA-trained actor set to star next year in the Queensland Theatre Company's production of The Mountaintop.

Meanwhile, Busty Beatz is a musical director, composer, sound designer and 'beat-making Mama' whose previous gigs include the boylesque show Briefs and the hip hop comedy act Sista She.

The night will feature a distinctly burlesque flavour - think movies such as Burlesque starring Christina Aguilera and Cher and the hottest 'theme' to hit hens parties. 'The basis of burlesque is the art of the tease,' explains Brodie Rees, marketing and events manager for Mad Dance House.

Burlesque, Rees adds, is a combo of cabaret and dance, performance, comedy and parody all rolled into one.'There is always going to be a fascination with the sex appeal and sensuality of the dance and I think as we become more liberated as women, this becomes more acceptable and people are more open to this nowadays,' she says.
