Kick up your heels this festive season as Australian dance performance company, Everybody NOW!, take over HOTA’s Outdoor Stage with the free event, Dance Beneath the Stars.
Hosted by Everybody NOW’s Ian Pidd, Dance Beneath The Stars is going to be the festive dance party of the season, featuring guest artist and songstress, Geraldine Quinn, energizing ten-piece brass group, Hot Potato Band, and performers from Gold Coast local dance schools.
Everyone is invited to join along, with audience participation welcomed and encouraged. Audiences can learn new moves and dance the night away, or just settle in to enjoy the dance party as it unfolds.
Criena Gehrke, HOTA CEO, said the event is set to be a glorious night of music, dancing and entertainment.
“Inspired by the Gold Coast’s dance hall heydays, we’re laying down the dance floor, hanging up the lights, and shining the brass (band that is) to create a dance palais beneath the stars,” she said.
“Expect to dance the night away alongside local swing and ballroom dancers with big band music and vintage footage from much-loved bygone eras.
“It’s going to be a little vintage glam, a little Tina Sparkle, and a little dirty dancing all in one,” said Criena.
The night will begin with an interactive performance by Barcelona street theatre company, OSADÍA, presenting an avant-garde theatre experience that combines performance make-up and hair art to make-over participants from the audience.
Then, Everybody NOW! will take to the stage performing two acts of engaging, playful and passionate entertainment that is bound to get everyone shaking their jazz hands, fluttering their quickstep and busting out the moves.
Joining them on onstage will be multi-award-winning rock cabaret artist, Geraldine Quinn, whose powerhouse vocals and rock’n’roll spirit is sure to get the audience on their feet. Followed by Hot Potato Band, breaking down the barrier between audience and band with their catchy music and infection dance moves.
Dance Beneath The Stars will be held at HOTA’s Outdoor Stage on Friday 13th December from 7.00pm with pre-show entertainment from 5.30pm.
