Keeping the beat on the street

THEY will be swinging and swaying, the records playing, for Albany Academy of Dance’s Dancing in the Streets concert extravaganza.

The talented dance students will tap, twirl and leap through a vast arrangement of songs, crossing a variety of dance styles.

Ballet, hip-hop, jazz, tap and contemporary routines will keep audiences entertained and on their feet for a night of excitement.

“There’s a genre for everybody,” Albany Academy of Dance owner and teacher Simone Newton said.

“Our youngest dancers are four-years-old and we have classes all the way up to adult ladies.

“We’ve even got three generations of a family dancing this year; a grandmother, daughter, and three granddaughters.”

Family involvement has been a big aspect of this year’s concert, with dance mum Margaretha Lachmann designing original graffiti artwork for projection on the Albany Entertainment Centre’s cyclorama.

Dancing in the Streets will play at the AEC on November 25 and 26 at 2pm.

Tickets for these concerts are hot property, so be sure to get yours soon from the AEC Box Office or online via Ticketek.
