The Australian Dance Crew Championships – 2014 Melbourne Prelims
Presented by UEG Events
Last Saturday after a play date with our mummies group at Kidzmania, we made our way to the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC) at Albert Park to get our fix of the latest dance shows choreographed by Melbourne’s finest urban dancers. It was so encouraging to see a range of crews from those with years of experience performing together, to those only a few months old! The crowd was filled with supportive patrons and very proud mums and dads cheering their kids on from the stands. I always love seeing the dancers give their all doing something they love. Hours and weeks of rehearsals culminated in amazing performances witnessed by those lucky enough to make it to the event.
Congratulations to all the crews who took part in the preliminary round and can’t wait to see what Sydney has to offer. I missed out on the Canberra prelims but you can watch all the Canberra dance crews doing their thing here.
