So You Think You Can Interpretative Dance?

Junction Arts Festival in association with Stompin, Launceston

Who could ever tire of the spontaneous, outrageous and increasingly bizarre spectacle of So You Think You Can Interpretative Dance?

Once again, one of the biggest and most anticipated hits of Junction Arts Festival is back by popular demand. It’s a dance competition for dancers good, bad and outright terrible, and for those who have found themselves busting a move at a party and thought, “I should be on stage!”

So You Think You Can Interpretative Dance? features a motley crew of signed-up competitors showing off their most fabulous dance moves to a randomly chosen selection of overplayed hits and anthems. Expect poorly executed pirouettes by grown men in unitards, sobbing 30-somethings with big hair and big expectations, and young people at their most earnest and sweet.

The internationally elite and overly opinionated panel of local dance experts includes Greg Leong from Theatre North, Andrew Palmer from Palmers Dance Studio, and Emma Porteus from Stompin.

Competitors and spectators of all ages welcome. Be yourself! Register alone, in a duet, or as a group.

Come on Grandma!

Note: Fancy yourself as an interpretive dancer? Please arrive at The Junc Room at 5:30pm for registration and performer briefing. Performer numbers are limited so be early! If need be, we’ll draw straws.
