Strap in for high oc­tane dance epic

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL - Peter Car­ruthers Peter.Car­ruthers@ news­re­gional­me­dia.com.au

UN­TAPPED is a high-oc­tane dance ex­pe­ri­ence for the whole fam­ily at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre next week.

Un­tapped is a rhyth­mic ex­trav­a­ganza of daz­zling sight and sound which taps into wild ter­ri­to­ries, per­haps how Fred As­taire might have per­formed if he’d joined a hip hop crew.

Un­tapped serves up a mix of ur­ban tap, street style and hip sounds, over­laid with a healthy dose of self-dep­re­cat­ing Aussie hu­mour. Un­tapped is strong, con­tem­po­rary and highly vir­tu­oso yet pro­pelled by a loose, easy, nat­u­ral en­ergy.

The beat-boxer’s charis­matic men­ac­ing style shows off his live mi­cro­phone tech­nique and elec­tronic rhyth­mic giz­mos, the dancers leap across the stage in jeans and sin­glets, cre­at­ing amaz­ingly in­tri­cate rhythms to com­ple­ment the live band rock­ing out on stage.

The loud mu­sic is a mix of funk, hip hop, fla­menco, African and jazz, paired with per­cus­sive acapella num­bers show­ing the dancers’ amaz­ing syn­chronic­ity.

Wit­ness the beau­ti­fully syn­chro­nised and ex­tremely com­i­cal flip flop toe tap­per for one per­for­mance only at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre.

Un­tapped doesn’t just hit the mark, it smashes it.

For one night only on March 28 at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre this month.
