October was about the razzle dazzle. The HD Dancers had the pleasure of performing as a variety of different characters all over town this month.

Dalena and I performed a lively jive from our Gatsby show at a wonderful hen's day. This was followed by a short 1920s style class for the group. These ladies could dance!

The Gatsby flavour continued with the HD crew performing the full Gatsby production the following week. We had the great honour of being the opening act for The Red Ball at Crown Palladium. (The Red Ball is held in aid of Hugh Jackman's charity for children with cancer).Red Ball Show

We performed out 1920s style show and then the crew wowed the crowd with a Latin extravaganza! For the finale, the muchachos, Ryan Schrader, Jason Ellershaw, Hooman and our capoeira master Daniel Jaime entered, followed by our glamorous mamasita Dalena with the Samba Queens (Lucia Emmerichs, Eley May and Holly Paterson).

It was a wonderful event and our main lady Dalena, who was photographed on the red carpet with Hamish Blake, was featured in the Herald Sun the following day.

In one month we transitioned from1920s Gatsby’s to Latino muchachos and then ended the month as Roman gladiators at the Carlton Italian Festa. Daniel Jaime and I were parading around and having our photos taken with guests of the festival. We did this for hours and enjoyed every minute of it. It's a pity we were not in Rome where the actors get paid for having their picture taken with the tourists. We could have made thousands of dollars!!

What will we be next month??

Captivate. Dance. Ignite.
