Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Dance Express Takes Centre Stage

Dance Express Mackay is thrilled to hit the stage on 19th November in a dance extravaganza like no other - No need to toss up which concerts to see in 2023, the concert of the year is right here!

The Dance Express kids will have you grooving in your seat from their larger-than-life Ready Set Dancers making a stage debut, to their Graduating Seniors taking their final bow.

A spectacle for the whole family, Dance Express concerts are known for their high energy and entertainment factor.

“After putting on my fair share of concerts over the years, what was once groundbreaking just doesn’t cut it anymore,” said Director of Dance Express, Karen Bishop.

“It is vital to keep innovating and pushing the boundaries to keep the audience engaged! Rather than the passive clap and awkward cough, we want a real party atmosphere.

“Our audience members are each given a glow stick to wave and dance within their seats. Seeing a sea of colour really gives the kids a boost and adds to the energy of the performance!” Ms Bishop exclaimed.

Gone are the days of long concerts with endless solos to slow the pace, Dance Express’ award-winning routines matched with the electric MECC atmosphere combine to create a show that is fast paced, exciting and fun!

A little bit of tap, a splash of jazz, a sprinkling of ballet, a drizzle of hip hop, stir in their cheer routines, top it off with some contemporary music, and you have the perfect ‘Concert Recipe’!

So, bring the whole family, lace up those dancing shoes and get ready to celebrate with Dance Express.

It is a dream for the performers to dance for a sold-out auditorium, and tickets are selling fast so grab yours today!
