UPstaged 2014 is here! And this year we are taking the show into an awesome new direction! Every year we see some of XO’s best dancers and students perform on the stage, but now in it’s 4th year we’re UPing the level to make the greatest show we have ever made and celebrate what we love : Dance! Of special note this year our show has a theme ~ Collaboration.
For the first time all pieces in the show are collaborative works between several instructors, working together to create an amazing performance. In addition, dancers have had to work hard and audition for each piece, bringing a higher level and quality of dance to each. We are also hosting UPstaged in an all new venue with excellent stage, lighting and sound. This will be a historic event for XO, and we want you to join us!
We have invited 2 amazing international dancers to both train a performance crew and showcase their own skills. We are proud to be bringing Korean dancers Honey J from Purplow and Stagger from Cross Over (His crew is also known Cross Over!). Their first time in Australia, make sure to come and check them out as they showcase their skills!
In addition, we have selected some of the best crews associated with Crossover Dance in the past and invited them to perform special pieces at this show. Each crew has a link to XO, and we are happy to work together with them for our collaboration show.
This show is going to be amazing, and the performers have been working harder then ever to bring you the best show they can. Come watch and support then passion and enjoy dance! This year we will redefine our annual show with a performance that is going to UPstage all our previous ones. Get ready to Crossover.
